Search the collection database.

The Honolulu Museum of Art has an exquisite collection of 17th- and 18th-century European painting, sculpture, and work on paper. Works by Pieter de Hooch, Edwaert Colyer, Abraham van Beyeren and Jan van Goyen demonstrate how Dutch and Flemish artists of this era meticulously recorded their subject matter in great detail to celebrate abundance on earth—and forewarn of its temporality.

 

Highlights from the 17th century include works by the French Rococo artists François Boucher and Claude Michel (Clodion), as well as Leonardo Coccorante’s Landscape with Roman Ruins and Marcantionio Franceschini’s Madonna and Child.

 

The collection includes important English Grand Manner portraits by Sir Thomas Lawrence, Sir Henry Raeburn, and George Romney, as well as by their American counterparts John Singleton Copley and Charles Wilson Peale. Their precedents include work by the Venetian and French Masters Giovanni Batista Moroni and Pierre Mignard.
