Rembrandt and fellow Dutch masters come to Nashville’s Frist from Detroit

NASHVILLE — Rembrandt seems almost like a bit-part actor in “Rembrandt and the Dutch Golden Age: Highlights From the Detroit Institute of Arts,” on display through May 19 at Nashville’s Frist Center for the Visual Arts. This terrific new exhibition of about 90 paintings and decorative objects includes just one bona fide (signed and dated) painting by the famed Dutch master.

Surprisingly, though, he’s hardly missed. And that, no doubt, is due to the show’s uniformly strong supporting cast. Frans Hals, Jan Steen, Jacob van Ruisdael and Gerhard Ter Borch are just some of the illustrious painters featured in this thoughtful, comprehensive exhibition. There’s even an exquisite still life from the studio of Rachel Ruysch, the most celebrated female artist of the Dutch Golden Age.
