In the forthcoming seasons of autumn 2023 and spring 2024, the illustrious legacy of Frans Hals will be commemorated through a series of distinguished exhibitions hosted by renowned institutions such as The National Gallery and Rijksmuseum. Notably, the Frans Hals Museum will proudly contribute to this celebration by showcasing a trio of exquisite works from our collection, that will be on view from the 18th of September.

Hals is still celebrated for his revolutionary contributions to portrait and genre painting. His style is characterised, among other things, by bold, loose brushwork, vibrant colours and the ability to capture the vitality and spirit of his subjects. This innovative approach to painting had a profound influence on future generations of artists, making him a key figure in the history of seventeenth-century art.
