Two imposing portraits of the same sitter painted a decade apart will showcase the revolutionary technique of Frans Hals (1582/83–1666), the first major artist of free Holland. Hals was the foremost portraitist of his time, recognized for “painting character” through virtuosic, loose, and animated brushwork. The portraits of Pieter Jacobsz Olycan, loaned to the DMA, will demonstrate the evolution of the artist’s technique at the highest point of his career.

The exhibition will be on display through October 11.
