The Golden Age of Dutch & Flemish Painting
This handsome Prestel publication comes in a lovely hard slip case and is an impressive size. Norbert Wolf applies his vast understanding of the interplay between history, culture and art to explore the forces that led to the Golden Age in Holland and Flanders and how this period influenced subsequent generations of artists.
The Netherlandish seventeenth century was an astonishing age for the creation and dissemination of images. Still life paintings, landscapes and depictions of every day life became increasingly valued by the merchant classes of the Dutch provinces while religious depictions and portraiture were will still of appeal to the Flemish patrons. The Golden Age brought us Rembrandt, Vermeer, Rubens and Van Dyck as well as Frans Hals and Jan Brueghel.
