How do you make someone look important? In seventeenth-century Holland, you dress them in ermine furs and show them reading expensive books. We have an installation in gallery 273 that’s all about the importance of books in art, and it features paintings like this one, where the books tell you a lot about what’s going on in the painting.“Old Woman Reading,” c. 1621–23, by Jan Lievens
