The Art of the Dutch Republic, 1585-1718

A Worldly Art The Dutch Republic 1585 1718 [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Art of the Dutch Republic, 1585-1718 by Mariët Westermann Book Summary:

The artistic culture of the Dutch republic in the seventeenth century has given us some of the most familiar and best-loved examples of European painting. In this fresh and readable account, Westermann describes this art as it was experienced by the people of the period and as it appears to us today. She shows how the history of Dutch art mirrors that of the Republic itself: vigorous, self-governing, and staunchly middle class. The prosperity of Amsterdam, Haarlem and Delft, created and supported such great names as Rembrandt, Vermeer, Frans Hals and Jan Steer, as well as many lesser-known painters and printmakers. Their works are discussed in the political, economic, religious and domestic contexts in which they were produced and seen. By bringing all this together, Westermann creates a richly detailed picture of Dutch culture at an extraordinary moment.

A Worldly Art The Dutch Republic 1585 1718 [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A Concise History of the Netherlands by James C. Kennedy Book Summary:

The Netherlands is known among foreigners today for its cheese and its windmills, its Golden Age paintings and its experimentation in social policies such as cannabis and euthanasia. Yet the historical background for any of these quintessentially Dutch achievements is often unfamiliar to outsiders. This concise history offers an overview of this surprisingly little-known but fascinating country. Beginning with the first humanoid settlers, the book follows the most important contours of Dutch history, from Roman times through to the Habsburgs, the Dutch Republic and the Golden Age. The author, a modernist, pays particularly close attention to recent developments, including the signature features of contemporary Dutch society. In addition to being a political history, this overview also gives systematic attention to social and economic developments, as well as in religion, the arts and the Dutch struggle against the water. The Dutch Caribbean is also included in the narrative.

Giants of Delft

A Worldly Art The Dutch Republic 1585 1718 [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Giants of Delft by Robert D. Huerta Book Summary:

"In a widely researched and deeply considered book, Huerta argues that Vermeer's use of the camera obscura and other instrumental adjuncts parallels van Leeuwenhoek's pursuit of the "optical way," and embodies a profound philosophical connection between these investigators. Analyzing Vermeer's work, Huerta shows that the artist's choices were the result of his personal response to contemporary scientific discoveries, and the work of men such as van Leeuwenhoek, Christiaan Huygens, and Galileo Galilei. Furthermore, Huerta compares Vermeer's program of informed observation to the methods used by van Leeuwenhoek and other scientists to accumulate and analyze instrument-mediated knowledge. This approach enabled Vermeer to confront the same issues as natural philosophers regarding the interpretation of unfamiliar images presented by instrumental systems."--BOOK JACKET.

The Dutch Republic in the Seventeenth Century by Maarten Prak,Diane Webb Book Summary:

Despite the tremendous number of studies produced annually in the field of Dutch art over the last 30 years or so, and the strong contemporary market for works by Dutch masters of the period as well as the public's ongoing fascination with some of its most beloved painters, until now there has been no comprehensive study assessing the state of research in the field. As the first study of its kind, this book is a useful resource for scholars and advanced students of seventeenth-century Dutch art, and also serves as a springboard for further research. Its 19 chapters, divided into three sections and written by a team of internationally renowned art historians, address a wide variety of topics, ranging from those that might be considered "traditional" to others that have only drawn scholarly attention comparatively recently.

The Art of Laughter

A Worldly Art The Dutch Republic 1585 1718 [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Art of Laughter by Anna Tummers,Elmer Kolfin,Jasper Hillegers Book Summary:

- The Art of Laughter: Humour in Dutch Paintings of the Golden Age presents the first ever overview of humor in seventeenth-century painting - Contains 60 masterpieces from painters such as Rembrandt, Frans Hals, Jan Steen, Gerrit van Honthorst and Judith Leyster Frans Hals is often called 'the master of the laugh.' More than any other painter in the Golden Age, he was able to bring a vitality to his portraits that made it appear as if his models could just step out of the past into the present. Hals was one of the few painters in the seventeenth century who dared portray his figures - often common folk - with a hearty laugh and bared teeth. Merriment and jokes are prominent features in his genre paintings; artists in the Golden Age frequently used it in their work. Now - centuries later - the visual jokes are harder to fathom. A great deal of new research into the field has been carried out, particularly in the last twenty years, and we are beginning to get an idea of the full extent of seventeenth-century humor. Contents: Foreword - The Art of Laughter. Contemporaries on Comic Paintings in the Golden Age - LOL from Bruegel to Brakenburgh - Catalogue - Notes essays - Notes catalogue - Bibliography. Published to accompany an exhibition at Frans Hals Museum, Haarlem, which runs until 18 March 2018.

Dutch Art and Urban Cultures, 1200-1700

A Worldly Art The Dutch Republic 1585 1718 [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Dutch Art and Urban Cultures, 1200-1700 by Elisabeth de Bièvre Book Summary:

Traditionally Dutch art is seen and presented as a coherent phenomenon--the product of state formation in the late 16th century. Elisabeth de Bièvre challenges this view and its assumptions in a radical new account. Arguing that the Dutch Golden Age was far from unified, de Bièvre exposes how distinct geographical circumstances and histories shaped each urban development and, in turn, fundamentally informed the art and visual culture of individual cities. In seven chapters, each devoted to a single city, the book follows the growth of Amsterdam, Delft, Dordrecht, Haarlem, Leiden, The Hague, and Utrecht over the course of five centuries. By embracing the full gamut of art and architecture and by drawing on the records of town histories and the writings of contemporary travelers, de Bièvre traces the process by which the visual culture of the Netherlands emerged to become the richest, most complex material expression in Europe, capturing the values of individuals, corporate entities, and whole cities.

Dutch Seventeenth-Century Genre Painting

A Worldly Art The Dutch Republic 1585 1718 [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Dutch Seventeenth-Century Genre Painting by Wayne Franits Book Summary:

The appealing genre paintings of great seventeenth-century Dutch artists—Vermeer, Steen, de Hooch, Dou, and others—have long enjoyed tremendous popularity. this comprehensive book explores the evolution of genre painting throughout the Dutch Golden Age, beginning in the early 1600's and continuing through the opening years of the next century. Wayne Franits, a well-known scholar of Dutch genre painting, offers a wealth of information about these works as well as about seventeenth-century Dutch culture, its predilections, and its prejudices. The author approaches genre paintings from a variety of perspectives, examining their reception among contemporary audiences and setting the works in political, cultural, and economic context. The works emerge as distinctly conventional images, Franits shows, as genre artists continually replicated specific styles, motifs, and a surprisingly restricted number of themes over the course of several generations. With hundreds of illustrations and a full representation of major artists and cities where genre painting flourished, this book will delight students, scholars, and general readers alike.
