Made in Holland: hoogtepunten uit de verzameling van Eijk en Rose-Marie de Mol van Otterloo by Quentin Buvelot
The Netherlands Establishes Endowment Fund at MFA, Boston
R ose-Marie and Eijk van Otterloo are considered two of the most important collectors of 17th-century Dutch Old Master painting in America. Although the couple started out collecting horse carriages, they were turned on to Dutch painting by Peter Sutton, a curator of European paintings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Eijk, an investment-fund manager at Chemonics, and Rose-Marie began collecting small and gradually turned their eye toward more expensive works. Their collection now includes major pieces by artists such as Rembrandt and Jacob van Ruisdael, and they are known for waiting years for the right works to fall into their hands. In particular, the van Otterloos collect landscape paintings. All Rights Reserved. Patent and Trademark Office.
The walls were bare. Gone was the Cuyp, a sprawling country landscape the North Shore couple had purchased for a few million dollars and kept over the fireplace. Likewise the Weenix and the de Witte, other living-room mainstays. With the van Otterloos at their home in Florida that recent winter night, it was left to their son, Sander, to explain the good news. For the first time, the van Otterloos have allowed their prized collection to be shown in its entirety. Rose-Marie van Otterloo chuckles at the story of the false alarm.
This catalogue of Dutch paintings from the collection of Eijk and Rose-Marie de Mol van Otterloo presents some of the finiest paintings from the Golden Age.
