The Baron de Ferrieres Collection

Organised and toured by Cheltenham Art Gallery

Mon 25 Apr – Sat 21 May 1988

17th – 19th century Dutch and Belgian Paintings from Cheltenham Art Gallery

Collected in the mid-nineteenth century by the second Baron de Ferrieres, these paintings were presented to Cheltenham Art Gallery by his son in 1898. Among the 17th century paintings in the collection is a self portrait by Gerard Dou and two moralising allegories by Jan Sleen. Nineteenth century Dutch and Belgian paintings are rare in British collections and are here well represented in the landscapes of Cornelius Springer and Barend Cornelius Koekkoek.
