The Dutch Golden Age of seventeenth century art was a time when trade, science, and art flourished, producing a rich and unparalleled legacy of painting.
Dutch Painting presents 38 masterpieces of Dutch art - including church interiors, cityscapes, landscapes, seascapes, genre scenes, portraits, and historical and biblical paintings - by the preeminent Dutch painters of the era from the National Gallery's collection.
With an essay that addresses the formation of the collection and the development of Dutch painting, Dutch Painting discusses each of the Dutch paintings in illuminating entries.
Among the works included in Dutch Painting are Frans Hals's Young Man holding a Skull (Vanitas), Jan van der Heyden's View of the Westerkerk, Amsterdam, Pieter de Hooch's Courtyard of a House in Delft, Rembrandt's Belshazzar's Feast, Jacob Van Ruisdael's A Landscape with a Ruined Castle and a Church, Pieter Saenredam's Interior of the Grote Kerk at Haarlem, and Johannes Vermeer's A Young Woman seated at a Virginal.
