The New Bedford Whaling Museum stewards one of the most important collections of maritime Dutch and Flemish paintings and prints outside of the Netherlands, and these treasures are showcased in the exhibition, “De Wind is Op! Climate, Culture and Innovation in Dutch Maritime Painting.” 

The Museum will explore these exceptional Golden Age paintings through a fresh lens, interpreting the artworks as indicators that wind, climate, innovation, and the sea were drivers behind a uniquely Dutch identity.
