Stories from the Collection: Painting for Profit

Join our assistant curator, Helen Hillyard, for an in-depth exploration of the ultracompetitive art market of the 17th-century Dutch Republic.
Helen will investigate how artists sold their works, who they sold them to, and the extra income they could earn on the side.
