Frans Hals

di Michael Savage

Frans Hals at the National Gallery exceeded my expectations. Glad to see genre as well as portraits, despite the title. Lots of reunited couples, lots of variety, well-chosen loans. That said, I do have some sympathy with Jonathan Jones’s critical review in the Guardian. Do we really need another show of Hals portraits? Would be much more interesting with context – Haarlem, or even – perish the thought! – a more connoisseurial show given controversies around Hals attributions.
