Music & Dance celebrates the forgotten arts of music and dance in the Golden Age through paintings from that same era. As vibrant and alive as when they were created some four centuries ago, the paintings exhibited here are a window into time and simply radiate passion, energy and joie-de-vivre. Music and Dance in the Dutch Golden Age of Painting is the first ever exhibition dedicated to this theme. On show are paintings from the Northern and Southern Netherlands, painted between 1600 and 1700. Visitors are able to see Old-Master paintings from  European private collections – never seen before – in the entirely new context of music and dance.
