Reflections on the Collection: The Edmond J. Safra Visiting Professors at the National Gallery of Art: Carel van Tuyll van Serooskerken on Annibale and Agostino Carracci, River Landscapes (c. 1590/1595)

Carel van Tuyll van Serooskerken (Teylers Museum, Haarlem, The Netherlands, and former Edmond J. Safra Visiting Professor at the National Gallery of Art) brings viewers inside the “rustic paradise” of river landscapes by brothers Annibale and Agostino Carracci in the National Gallery of Art collection. While describing their distinct approaches to the subject, Professor van Tuyll shows the pleasure the brothers took in creating these views.
