The Royal Collection is home to a diverse collection of Dutch paintings with a particular wealth of paintings by the Dutch masters of the seventeenth century, including Johannes Vermeer, Gerrit Dou, Jan Steen, and Pieter de Hooch. This world-class collection of paintings was first catalogued in 1982 by one of the leading scholars of Dutch and Flemish art, Sir Christopher White, and the resulting Dutch Pictures has been recognized for more than three decades as a landmark work.

This revised and updated edition brings Dutch Pictures back into print. Since its initial publication, the Royal Collection has cleaned and restored many of the paintings, and stunning new color photography allows readers to more fully appreciate the fine detail. Scholarship in the area has advanced dramatically, and some of the paintings, including Rembrandts, have been reattributed, and White integrates new scholarship in this edition. Rounding out the book is an account of how this important collection of Dutch paintings was assembled, including enthusiastic contributions by George IV, as well as how it has been displayed and appreciated in the years since. Readers who have long turned to White’s book as a reliable reference will welcome this revised and updated edition, while it will also prove a fascinating read to those newly interested in Dutch art.
