The Cincinnati Art Museum’s Northern Baroque Splendor features the Hohenbuchau Collection, an assortment of works regularly on display at the Liechtenstein Museum in Vienna. The collection consists of dozens of paintings of various genres, including portraits, landscapes, historical painting, and still life, and represents the Golden Age of Dutch and Flemish art that took place predominantly in the 17th century.

Many of the works in the notably large and diverse collection have never been shown in the US, and Cincinnati is the last of only two scheduled exhibits in the nation before the collection is hustled back overseas. The exhibit, which will be free and open to the public, runs through September 20. Peter C. Sutton, the Executive Director of the Bruce Museum in Connecticut who organized the exhibition, will be offering a lecture about the collection at 6 p.m. on June 25. The lecture is free for members and $10 for non-members.
