Special Collections - Dutch Paintings

A few works that originally entered the Gallery’s collection as seventeenth-century Dutch paintings have been found to belong to other schools or periods. These works include The Lacemaker and The Smiling Girl, both of which were attributed to Johannes Vermeer when they entered the Gallery in 1937 as part of the original Andrew Mellon bequest, but were subsequently determined to be twentieth-century imitations.
