Turner in Dordrecht is published on the occasion of a special acquisition for the Dordrechts Museum: an early painting by Turner, in which Cuyp’s influence is visible. In this way, Turner has returned to Dordrecht. With this booklet you follow the artist in his search for his famous predecessor.

In the Light of Cuyp

The story of Dordrecht’s greatest painter is unique. Cuyp was very much a local artist in his day, virtually unknown beyond his hometown. He lived and worked his entire life in Dordrecht and the buyers of his landscapes came almost exclusively from his birthplace. It was only after his death that he was discovered by English collectors and artists. From around 1750 there was a veritable Cuyp mania in England. The British aristocracy were so captivated by Cuyp’s sun-drenched landscapes that by around 1800 there were no longer any important works by the Dutch master to be found in the Netherlands. A Cuyp was a must-have in the great English country house.

In the Light of Cuyp will present many works by British artists including Richard Wilson, Thomas Gainsborough, John Constable, J.M.W. Turner, Richard Parkes Bonington, Augustus Wall Callcott and John Crome that have never before been shown in the Netherlands.
