HART331 Seventeenth Century Dutch Painting 3 cr.


The focus of this course is the paintings and culture of the Dutch Republic during its “Golden Age” : 1600-1675. Topics to be considered in detail include Dutch Mannerism; the school of Utrecht; Hals and developments around him in Haarlem; Rembrandt and the Rembrandt Research Project; associates, pupils and followers of Rembrandt; Vermeer, the School of Delft and other genre painters; and Ruisdael, Hobbema and landscape painting. Emphasis is also given to Dutch painting in the following contexts: Dutch capitalism and the growth of Dutch wealth in the early Golden Age; the open market situation of Dutch “patronage”; Dutch work ethic Protestantism; and the greatness of Dutch lens-making as an aspect of Dutch science. Some of the following topics may also be considered: the “twilight” of the Golden Age 1675-1725; sources of the French Rococo in seventeenth-century Dutch painting; sources of eighteenth century English painting in Dutch realism. This course was formerly titled Northern Baroque Art.
