Press Event: Gabriel Metsu, 1629-1667

In the first monographic exhibition of Gabriel Metsu's work in the United States, 33 paintings reveal the artist's extraordinary ability to capture ordinary moments of 17th-century Dutch life with spontaneity and unerring realism. On view in the East Building of the National Gallery of Art, Washington, from April 10 through July 24, 2011, 'Gabriel Metsu, 1629–1667' includes 14 paintings that have never been on view in the U.S.
