This re-creation of the Lehman's sitting room—with red velvet damask wall coverings—serves as a dramatic setting for seventeenth-century Dutch portraits and genre scenes as well as works by Spanish masters. Highlights include Rembrandt's poignant portrait of the artist and critic Gerard de Lairesse and El Greco's Saint Jerome, which synthesizes the saint's roles as scholar and ascetic.
Also on display are enameled objects produced in Limoges, France, during the sixteenth century.
