Gerard Donck
(Dutch, before 1610–after 1640), Portrait of Nicolaes Willemsz. Lossy and his wife Marritgen Pieters, 1633, oil on panel, Museum purchase with funds from the Berchel H. and Alice Dale Harper Estate and bequest of Rose Marie Baumgarten, 2017.2

Little is known about Gerard Donck’s life. Active in Amsterdam alongside Rembrandt, he painted genre scenes, street vendors, and portraits set in interiors and landscapes. His portrait of Nicolaes Willemsz. Lossy and his wife, Marritgen Pieters, combines conventions of court portraiture with everyday settings and objects. Descended from a long line of official city musicians, Nicolaes Lossy held the respected position of city organist of the Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam.

Following Dr. Cowen's gallery talk participants will enjoy music-to-your-mouth spinach-stuffed boneless breast of chicken with roasted red pepper garlic cream, sauce, roasted vegetables, rice variations, and chocolate mousse.
