Michal and Renata Hornstein have recently donated some 69 Old Master paintings to the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Montreal, the vast majority by Dutch and Flemish painters.  The Art Tribune has just published images of four paintings and a list of artists represented in the bequest, which includes works by Jan Lievens (above), Pieter Claesz (below), Jan Steen (below) and Giovanni Battista Piazzetta (below).  This is in addition to some 30 other paintings, including one by Claude Lorrain (below), and 330 drawings.
