Room XII. Dutch and Flemish Schools. Besides works of
Rubens and Van Dyck, the chiefs of the Flemish school of the
17th cent., this room contains good examples of Rembrandt, their
great Dutch contemporary, principally of his later period. His
pupils, N. Alaas and P. deHooghe. are also well represented. The
small pictures by Flemish masters of the loth cent., though
neither usually of the first class, nor always to be attributed to the
painters whose names they bear, are yet of great interest, as afford¬
ing a varied survey of the realistic manner of the school.
