Rembrandt and the Dutch Golden Age

Masterpieces from the Rijksmuseum

At the time, the art of the seventeenthcentury 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, symbolladen stilllifes, the colorful life of the cities and the characters of the people to maritime power.

Beautifully illustrated and designed, and written in an engaging and accessible style, Rembrandt and the Dutch Golden Age enlightens readers on the artists, the art, and the times. The seventy-eight artworks by some fifty artists are organized in themes: meeting the Dutch; inside and outside the town walls; across the oceans; the home and the inn; Rembrandt, master of light and shade; tales from the past; and arrangements of life and death.
