Fodor's Review

Housed in an 18th-century patrician mansion, the collection of traveler and art connoisseur Abraham Bredius (1855–1946) supports the argument that private collections are often the best. It includes works by Jan Steen, as well as nearly 200 paintings by Dutch "little masters"—whose art Bredius trumpeted. Once curator of the Mauritshuis, Bredius was the first art historian to question the authenticity of Rembrandt canvases (there were zillions of them in the 19th century), setting into motion a seismic quake that reduced the master's oeuvre to fewer than 1,000 works. The house, overlooking the Hofvijver, makes a fittingly elegant setting for the art.
