Portrait of a Lady from the van Beijeren van Schagen Family (Theodora van Duvenvoord?), Michiel Jansz van Mierevelt. Oil on panel, 63 x 51 cm. 1620. Madrid, Museo Nacional del Prado

This section includes the Dutch paintings that entered the Museo del Prado in the 19th century through bequests and donations, and those that came to the museum in the 20th century as gifts in lieu or direct purchases. This has allowed various gaps in the collection to be filed, for example, still lifes and in particular, portraits. There is still much to be done in this sense, but these new acquisitions reveal that the Museum’s Dutch collecting is a living, growing one.
