To accompany the exhibition, Hirst selected sixteen works from the Rijksmuseum’s collection of 17th-century Dutch paintings, many of which displayed thematic similarities to ‘For the Love of God’. Included in his selection were Aelbert Jansz van der Schoor’s ‘Vanitas Still Life’ (c.1650) and Jan Weenix’s ‘Still Life with Hare and Other Game’ (1697).
