About the Event

The Dutch Golden Age (1588 to 1672) was not only a period of extraordinary riches and incredible progress for the country's trade, science, and military, but also its art. What was it about this brief span that led to so many masterful artworks painted by now legendary artists like Johannes Vermeer and Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn? It's time to explore one of the most profound periods in art history through a collection of paintings that are still revered all these centuries later.

Join Mariska Beekenkamp-Wladimiroff as we uncover the incredible art styles pioneered during the Golden Age of Dutch art, with a focus on six magnificent paintings that represent the aesthetic production of 17th century Holland.

This virtual journey through paintings that capture down to earth, relatable, and ordinary scenes of daily life will include:

  • A brief overview of the Dutch Golden Age and why the country's art flourished during this brief 100 year period
  • A deep dive into six paintings that represent six unique themes developed during this period: the Dutch, their cities, landscape, society, beliefs, and artistic genres
  • A close look at artworks from private and public collections in the U.S. and Europe
  • The historical, religious, and socio-economic background of 17th century Holland
  • A detailed explanation of the iconography and symbolism used in Dutch art during this period

Afterward, there will be time for Q&A with Mariska — any and all questions about the Netherlands, its Golden Age, artists and patrons, and art collections are welcomed and encouraged!
