Hals meets Manet, Singer Sargent, Van Gogh

Frans Hals was rediscovered as a modern idol two hundred years after his death. He was admired, even adored by late nineteenth-century artists such as Edouard Manet, Max Liebermann and Vincent van Gogh. They were all impressed by his loose touch and rough painting style, which came across as ‘Impressionist’.

Frans Hals, The Fisher Boy, 1632/33

This exhibition shows Frans Hals’s immense impact on these modern painters. For the first time, paintings by the famous seventeenth-century portrait painter are being shown alongside reactions to his work from other major eras of painting.

Seeing works by Frans Hals alongside virtuoso work by the artists whom he inspired gives insight into how modern Frans Hals was in in their eyes: ‘Frans Hals, c’est un moderne’.

Vincent van Gogh, Postman Joseph Roulin, 1888
