Gerard van Honthorst: The Concert

The Concert: Gerard van Honthorst

The Concert by Dutch Golden Age master Gerard van Honthorst is full of a colorful gaiety that matches the music being played and sung. The painter revels in this 1623 canvas the various textures of clothing and headdress just as the ensemble is absorbed in their music and merry-making.

Gerard van Honthorst’s The Concert is in the possession of the National Gallery of Art in Washington.
