Painted probably around 1600, 'Landscape: A River among Mountains' is an early example of a landscape without religious subject matter: http://bit.ly/1YncwF6

This still life by Jan Jansz. Treck features two blue and white Ming bowls. The blue has discoloured over the years because the artist used smalt, a chemically unstable pigment: http://bit.ly/1nN07zA

Visiting country inns to eat, drink and play skittles and bowls became a popular pastime for the increasing urban population of the Dutch Republic. Jan Steen captures this scene in 'Skittle Players outside an Inn': http://bit.ly/1PkoCQz

The fashionable costume featured in Giovanni Battista Moroni's 'Portrait of a Lady ('La Dama in Rosso')' suggests the date for this picture to be 1556-60. She holds an early form of fan in her left hand: http://bit.ly/1OIJcV3

One of my favourite pieces at the gallery. Gorgeous handling of the fabric.

'A Man holding a Glove' by Jan Gossaert is unusually small and seems to have been speedily painted with immense skill. This may suggest neither artist nor sitter had very much time to spare: http://bit.ly/1PHftBA

Jan Lievens’s self portrait features a voluminous padded silk gown – probably imported from Japan – and long, loose hair. This was the height of fashion in the early to mid-1650s: http://bit.ly/1OUZPwX
