Tobacco Bar, Adriaen Brouwer

The renewed presentation of main works from the rich museum collection served as a guideline: traveling to a Dutch city in the Golden Age. Dozens of paintings by Frans Hals, Salomon van Ruysdael, Willem Heda and many others revived the 17th century Haarlem. The visitor was led ‘from the outside in’: via seaports and landscapes one approached the city, entered the Grote Markt, and became acquainted with the inhabitants and their daily life. Still lifes were the final part of this new presentation, which was on display for almost a year.
