It is hard to tire of the Old Masters, and this delightful traveling exhibition from the Kenwood House in London offers a taste of the expertise of Rembrandt, Van Dyck, and Gainsborough. This site was created as part of the traveling exhibit that has passed through a number of cities, including Milwaukee. The American Federation of Arts and English Heritage arranged the exhibit; it also received financial support from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation and Barbara and Richard S. Lane. This website provides access to some of the 48 masterpieces in this collection, which primarily come from a collection created a century ago by Edward Cecil Guinness, 1st Earl of Iveagh. Visitors can browse through the Image Gallery to peruse works like Thomas Gainsborough's "Countess Howe Mary" and J.M.W. Turner's "A Coast Scene With Fishermen Hauling a Boat Ashore." Be sure to take advantage of the Artist Biographies and the helpful Teachers Guide.
