Naughty children, stupid peasants, foolish dandies and befuddled drunks, quack doctors, pimps, procuresses, lazy maids and lusty ladies – rarely have more humorous paintings been produced than in the Dutch Golden Age. 'The Art of Laughter: Humour in the Golden Age' runs from 11 November 2017 to 18 March 2018 in the Frans Hals Museum.Now: The Art of Laughter
Three of Frans Hals’s finest works are now back on display. Over the last four years the world-famous governors’ portraits have undergone comprehensive restoration. Yellowed layers of varnish and discoloured retouches were removed, and the paintings can now be seen closer to their original state than ever before. As Good as New? runs from 18 January to 18 March.
