Floodlighting programme of some forty-six buildings in Glasgow. 6 Riverside apartments at China Wharf, London, by Campbell Zogolovitch Wilkinson & Gough. The golden age of Dutch art Frans Hals (1581-1666) was one of the most distinguished Dutch masters of the seventeenth century. He was best known for portraiture and had a special talent for capturing fleeting facial expressions. Until April 8, the Royal Academy will be showing the first international exhibition of his work to pay tribute to the towering achievements of this great artist. Sixty-six paintings will be on show, including some, such as the great pair of group portraits of the Regents and Regentesses of.the Old Men’s Aim House, and The Meagre Company, which have never been seen in London before. Sponsored by Unilever, this is a show not to be missed. Above, detail from Officers of the Amsterdam Crossbow Civic Guard under Captain Raeal and Lieutenant Cornelis Michielsz Blaeuw, known as â˜The Meagre Company’ 1637, and left, Family Portrait in a Landscape, 1620, both by Frans Hals.
