Exhibition Website

May 28 2024 - Sep 1 2024

Featuring drawings and paintings by Hendrick Avercamp and other Dutch artists of the early 1600s, this exhibition focuses on landscapes that highlight frigid winters and unusually cool summers. 

It tells a story of persistent global cooling in the 17th century and shows how artists underscored the fundamental uncertainty of life and the necessity for adaptation through their depictions of ice skating and fishing.
