Small marvels


June 17, 1999|By Glenn McNatt

Peter Paul Rubens, Anthony van Dyck and others are featured in "An Eye for Detail," an exhibition of 67 small Dutch and Flemish paintings from a private collector that opens Sunday at the Walters Art Gallery.

The show is designed to allow visitors to enjoy these "small marvels" in an intimate setting. The tiny still lifes, landscapes, portraits and genre scenes, some no larger than a postcard, are crafted with a precision that is at once engrossing and pleasing to the eye.

Also opening Sunday at the Walters is "Eureka! The Archimedes Palimpsest," an exhibition of manuscripts featuring the oldest surviving works of the first great mathematical genius.

The Walters Art Gallery is at 600 N. Charles St. Hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $5; $3 seniors and students; $1 children under 18. For more information, call 410-547-9000.
