The latest exhibit at the Bruce Museum being Northern Baroque art to Greenwich, all the way from Vienna. 

"They are lent to us throughout the great generosity of Prince Liechtenstein because they are on permanent loan to the Princely Collections of Liechtenstein in Vienna in the Great Palace.  They range in date from the late 16th Century to the early 19th Century. Most are Dutch and Flemish paintings of the 17th Century. There's also some very fine German 17th Century pictures too," said Peter Sutton, the Executive Director of the Bruce Museum. 

Sutton is an expert on this art and gave a tour of the 64 paintings on display.
