The Art Gallery of Josephus Augustinus Brentano 1790
by Adriaan de Lelie
Brentano had a picture collection comparable to that of Gildemeester, likewise located on the Herengracht in Amsterdam. He hung his paintings as symmetrically as possible. The painted pilasters from his gallery have been preserved and a few are also on display here. The visitors are mainly artists and art dealers looking at possible new acquisitions with the collector.
