Works by artists from Haarlem including Willem Buytewech, Willem Claesz Heda, Pieter Saenredam and Jacob van Ruisdael are shown alongside works by famous Dutch and Flemish painters such as Hendrick Avercamp, Jan Lievens and Anthonie van Dyck. Moreover, on the occasion of the 350th year of Frans Hals’s death in 2016, two of his beautiful portraits that are now in Budapest are reunited with his paintings at the Frans Hals Museum< br>
The publication presents these gems from the Szépmüvészeti Múzeum through large colour images and informative texts about genres, techniques and the collection as a whole, thus throwing new light on the Haarlem pieces and at the same time painting a kaleidoscopic picture of the art of this period
