Homage to Aert van der Neer

A close look at paintings in dialogue with the work of Aert van der Neer.

Dazzled by the twilight of seventeenth-century painter Aert van der Neer’s Moonlit Landscape with a Road beside a Canal (1645–50), contemporary Spanish artist Alberto Reguera created twenty-three paintings as an homage to the celebrated artist of the Dutch Golden Age. Each of Reguera’s paintings displays an in-depth study of the representation of light and sky in the European tradition of painting while engaging in a dialogue with Van der Neer’s Moonlit Landscape. This new series of paintings examines and connects directly to Van der Neer’s masterpiece and the important painterly achievements of the Dutch painter’s generation. The exhibition and accompanying publication is the second collaboration between the University Museum and Art Gallery and Alberto Reguera.
