Genre painting distinguishes itself from religious or historical paintings by focusing on depictions of everyday life. This exhibition reveals figures engaged in moments of serene contemplation, surrounded by objects and pictorial details that further enrich the story. Included are works by Hendrik Heyligers, Evert Pieters, Vincent Stoltenberg Lerche, and Bernard de Hoog and Viggo Pedersen. Showing alongside this exhibition are a rotating selection of museum quality paintings, objets d’art, and antiques from Europe and North America.
