Following the tremendous public and critical acclaim of Peabody Essex Museum's 2011 exhibition, 'Golden: Dutch and Flemish Masterworks from the Rose-Marie and Eijk van Otterloo Collection', the museum once again exhibits works from the renowned Van Otterloo collection. Featuring 17th century paintings, 'Golden Light, Selections from the Van Otterloo Collection' explores Dutch art and life in the 1600s. This new installation features 15 paintings by Jan Lievens, Emanuel de Witte, Pieter Claesz, Jan Brueghel the Elder and others. Golden Light will be on view through May 30, 2014.

Over the last two decades, Rose-Marie and Eijk van Otterloo have assembled one of the world's best private collections of 17th-century Dutch and Flemish art. Superb in condition and impeccable in provenance, the Van Otterloo collection boasts exemplary paintings, furniture, and decorative arts from the Golden Age - an era of unsurpassed artistic, cultural, scientific, and commercial accomplishment in the Netherlands.
