Dutch and Old Master Paintings 

Location: Materials and Masters

In 1905 a group of Dutch paintings from the sixteenth to seventeenth centuries, together with copies of Old Masters, was given to the Beaney by Gerard Frederick de Zoete, with a further bequest in 1932. They were from a much larger collection of European art made by his father, Samuel Herman de Zoete.
