The Michaelis Collection
Frans Hals (1582-1666). Portrait of a Woman. Oil on canvas. Iziko Michaelis Collection

A fresh and full installation of the Iziko Michaelis Collection, Cape Town's famous collection of 17th-century Dutch and Flemish paintings, is now on view.

The rehang not only seeks to emulate the sense of abundance of pictures in Dutch homes of the 1600's but also poses questions about the art-historical relationships of the "baroque" and the "modern" through the deliberate insertion of twentieth-century hard-edge and painterly abstract paintings among pictorial groupings.
