Summary

At the time, the art of the seventeenth century Dutch Republic was admired and sought after far beyond the country's borders. To this day, works by painters such as Rembrandt, Frans Hals and Johannes Vermeer are among the most prized in many museums. The outstanding quality, wholly individual character of the art and the huge output of paintings and prints in this period are unique in history. This book introduces the work of the greatest artists of the Dutch golden age, an era of unparalleled wealth, power and cultural confidence. It presents a vivid and compelling panorama of a place and period, from tranquil landscapes, symbol laden still lifes, the colourful life of the cities and the characters of the people to maritime power.
