Frans Hals Portraits: A Family Reunion

Exhibition premieres in Toledo Oct. 13, 2018-Jan. 6, 2019 before international tour

One of the greatest portraitists in the history of Western European painting, Frans Hals (1582/83-1666) is renowned for his revolutionary candid style of capturing sitters in seemingly spontaneous poses and lively gestures. For the first time, Halsís family group portraits from collections in the United States and Europe, including the reunion of one canvas cut into sections more than two centuries ago, will be brought together in the international exhibition Frans Hals Portraits: A Family Reunion, on view at the Toledo Museum of Art (TMA), the exclusive U.S. venue, from Oct. 13, 2018, through Jan. 6, 2019.
