The Art of the Dutch Republic, 1585-1718

The Art Of 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 by Mariët Westermann Book Summary:

Newly independent in 1585, the increasingly prosperous and politically powerful Dutch Republic experienced a tremendous rise in the production of artwork that was unparalleled in quantity, variety, and beauty. Now back in print, this classic book (originally published in 1996) examines the country's rich artistic culture in the seventeenth century, providing a full account of Dutch artists and patrons; artistic themes and techniques; and the political and social world in which artists worked. Distinguished art historian Mariët Westermann examines the "worldly art" of this time in the context of the unique society that produced it, analyzing artists' choices and demonstrating how their pictures tell particular stories about the Dutch Republic, its people, and its past. More than 100 color illustrations complement this engaging discussion of an extraordinary moment in the history of art.

Everyday Phenomenology

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

Everyday Phenomenology by Derek Mitchell Book Summary:

No-one who reads this book will ever see the world the same again. Derek Mitchell’s aim is to pursue phenomenology, and therefore appearances obliquely, in a number of areas. Predominantly, these are the appearances of houses, landscapes, places, people and history; but these specific studies coalesce into a more general theory about appearances, place and time and thereby provide a phenomenology of the everyday. In this pursuit, the author brings together works of philosophy, literature, history and art in order to circumvent the apparent paradox of the ubiquity and inaccessibility of the everyday. This makes the work wide ranging and extensive, but by the end, a delicate coherence and unity emerges from allowing the coming together of these different avenues of approach to appearances. Philosophically speaking, the author’s guides through all of this are Martin Heidegger, Hans-Georg Gadamer and Gaston Bachelard, with assistance notably from Descartes, Hume, Kant, Hegel and Sartre, although Mitchell endeavours to add some insights of his own as the book progresses. Other significant contributions come from the works of W. G. Sebald, Dennis Severs, Rainer Maria Rilke, Irene Nemirovsky; the writing of David Hockney; and some Dutch artists.

The Poetry of Everyday Life

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

The Poetry of Everyday Life by N.A Book Summary:

Tradition has it that the young American republic had a natural affinity with the 17th-century Dutch oligarchy -- they shared concepts of democracy, religious freedom, the rise of the middle class, and a protestant work ethic. Bostonians from the 18th century to the present have turned this affinity into a passion for collecting Dutch painting. Landscapes that capture the subtleties of southern light, cityscapes and church interiors, seascapes, portraits, genre scenes, and still lifes are among the humble, precious, everyday subjects that have appealed to them. This book traces the history of Boston's remarkable collection of Dutch painting, including little-known works by Rembrandt, Balthasar van der Ast, Jan van der Heyden, and Jacob van Ruisdael, bringing together works from private collections usually seen only in their owner's homes.

The Ashgate Research Companion to Dutch Art of the Seventeenth Century

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

The Ashgate Research Companion to Dutch Art of the Seventeenth Century by Wayne Franits 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

The Art Of 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.
