The Empty Glass

Ask anything

  • Megan Denson asked

    Hi, I recently bought two paintings from a high end estate sale in New Orleans, Louisiana which I believe are Pieter de Hooch. They have a striking resemblance to this painting. Is there someone I can email pictures to take a look?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Hi Megan, I would reach out to our Curator of Old Masters about this (ruben.suykerbuyk@boijmans.nl). I've talked to him, so he knows about your question. Best, Lisa
