The first substantial study of the celebrated art collection assembled by Dutch stadholder Frederick Henry, Prince of Orange (1584-1627) and his consort, Amalia of Solms (1602-1675), this catalogue presents a notable selection of some 60 paintings and other works consisting largely of portraits and treatments of religious and mythological subjects by Honthorst, Van Dyck, Rembrandt, Rubens, Jordaens, Bloemaert, Lievens and other contemporary Netherlandish artists. Fine reproductions and scholarly discussions of the exhibited pieces are prefaced by six well-illustrated essays that review Dutch political history of the early 17th century, discuss the formation, function and dispersal of Frederick Henry and Amalia's painting collection, describe the interior decoration of the princely couple's residences in and around The Hague and examine patterns of patronage among private Dutch art collectors of the period.
