Haarlem Frans Hals Museum - Barbarians & Philosophers. The image of China in the Golden Age

Barbarians & Philosophers sheds light on the way China and the Netherlands formed images of one another in the seventeenth century. The Dutch were fascinated by the culture of the ‘Celestial Empire’; the Chinese were astonished by the Dutch ‘redheaded barbarians’. A selection of paintings, drawings, porcelain and models charts the cultural exchange.
 
The exhibition will be on view until August 20, 2017
