Omschrijving The Netherlands was one of the most important sites of global encounter and exchange in seventeenth-century Europe. It was also a major center of artistic production and innovation. This course explores connections between Dutch art of the Golden Age and the Netherlands’ role as an international hub of cultural, commercial, and scientific activity. Topics to be considered include: the changing art market and its impact on new audiences and novel types of art; the dissemination of images and ideas through print culture; the representation of global encounters; the formation and representation of new national, civic, political, religious, and social identities; and artistic exchanges between the Netherlands and other cultures. Readings and discussions will examine the art of well-known masters such as Rembrandt, Hals, and Vermeer, as well as less familiar but equally fascinating works by their contemporaries. Although paintings and prints will be a main focus, we will consider the larger context of Dutch material and visual culture and also investigate textiles, sculpture, metalwork, furniture, jewelry, ceramics, and embellished natural specimens.
