The Golden Age of Dutch Art – Dutch Art in the 17th century

25 September – 4 December 2014

Following the National Gallery’s Vermeer and Music: Love and Leisure in the Dutch Golden Age [exhibition; 26 June – l8 September 2013], the course will explore the innovations of one of the richest periods in Dutch art. As well as examining genres such as landscape, portrait, flower paintings, and still lives, we will focus in detail on key artists including: Rembrandt, Vermeer, Jan Steen, Frans Hals, and Rachel Ruysch and unravel the complex symbolism of the period.

“I do not believe that so many good painters can be found anywhere else; also the houses are filled with very beautiful paintings and no one is so poor as not to wish to be well provided with them.”
(Jean Nicholas de Parival, Leiden resident, 1660s)
