HARC 0095 Seventeenth-Century Dutch Painting

This course covers the phase in art referred to as the ‘Golden Age’ of Dutch painting, characterised for developing still life and landscape subjects as well as portrait and genre painting. Extraordinary for its various intense visions of human nature, landscape and light, the paintings of key exponents of seventeenth-century Dutch painting, such as Rembrandt, Vermeer and Ruisdael, can be studied in the National Gallery, London, with some examples in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.
