Elizabeth & Frederik,
400 years marriage of the Winter Queen and Winter King
February 2013 – May 2013
Exhibition Newspaper, 14 February 2013, Den Haag Centraal.
400 years ago, on Valentine’s Day 1613, Elizabeth Stuart, Princess Royal, married Prince Frederick V, Elector Palatine. They were both sixteen and had no idea of the impact their alliance would have on the course of European history. They were chosen to rule over Bohemia, but were forced to flee Prague after reigning for just one winter. Known henceforth as the Winter King and Queen they spent the rest of their lives in Holland. They were the first royal couple to reside in The Hague and enhanced the courtly culture that had begun to flourish under Frederik Hendrik, Prince of Orange, and his wife Amalia van Solms.

Three introductory articles discuss aspects of the music of the period, followed by detailed discussions of paintings with a musical theme. The authentic instruments originally displayed in the accompanying exhibition are extensively described in a survey of instruments of the period offering a lucid understanding of the range and variety of music in Holland in the seventeenth century.

This extensive catalogue accompanied the exhibition on Rembrandt’s pupils organised by Hoogsteder & Hoogsteder in 1992. In his introductory essay Professor Werner Sumowski describes the beauty of Rembrandt’s art and that of his pupils. Paul Huys Janssen shows that the term ‘School of Rembrandt’ does little justice to the excellence of the work of Rembrandt’s pupils. ‘This theme is elaborated in the beautiful exhibition catalogue […]. With his detailed analysis of the paintings and using the historical sources, Paul Huys Janssen opens a window into the painter’s workshop, through which we can see the master as he teaches, surrounded by a group of pupils’, Herman Rosenberg commented in Het Binnenhof.
