Celebrate the opening of Dutch Art in a Global Age: Masterpieces from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Members enjoy exclusive after-hours access to the exhibition, live music, special activities, and a cash bar.

On view at the High through July 14, this exhibition brings together more than one hundred works spanning the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The collection of works includes paintings, prints, maps, and decorative art objects by the period’s leading Dutch artists and reflects how the Dutch wished to represent themselves, their ideals, and their concerns in a world that was rapidly shifting due to the influence of international expansion and colonialism. Highlighting the region’s dynamic and complex history, the exhibition invites viewers to gaze upon Dutch masterpieces with a contemporary lens.
