Topic: The 17th century Golden Dutch Baroque was one of the most phenomenal and explosive periods in European art. It has been estimated that between five and ten million works of art had been produced during the century of the Golden Age of Dutch Art. We will explore this rise of the Dutch landscape, still life, portraiture and genre painting that flourished in the Netherlands and created an art market never before seen in Europe. Why the Netherlands, and what factors there made this the right time for such art to prosper? Who were some of the key artists of this golden century? Learn more about the artists and times of this remarkable period in Western Art History.
Registration required. Minimum of 12 persons for lecture series to take place.
