The artists include Joachim Patenier, Hendrick Avercamp, Jan van Goyen, Jacob van Ruisdael, Claude Lorrain, Domenichino and Bernardo Bellotto.

They are complemented by early-modern landscapes by sucessor artists from the same countries, including van Gogh, Segantini and Monet. These are presented in an entirely novel way: lying flat on presentation plinths and surrounded by their predecessors hanging resplendent on the walls, they reveal themselves to us in another dimension – that of the vast country that the Old Masters painted so emblematically.
