The Golden Age was an influential period in art history, bringing us powerful portraits, domestic interiors and baroque compositions from the likes of Rubens, Rembrandt, Vermeer and Van Dyck. This book examines the forces that led to the Golden Age in Holland and Flanders, and the ways in which this period influenced later generations of artists.

Written in an accessible and insightful style, Norbert Wolf links together the connections between history, culture and art. The author examines the rise in popularity of still lifes, landscapes and romantic depictions of everyday life among the increasingly wealthy merchant classes, and the continued appeal of religious and historic paintings among the Flemish patronage.

Accompanied by vibrant colour illustrations, this book considers the complex political, religious, social and economic situation that led to newfound prosperity and an enormous artistic output. This study also looks at Hals’ revolutionary portraits, Brouwer’s vivid depictions of leisure among the working class, Brueghel’s velvety miniatures and Avercamp’s lively winter landscapes.
