The Great Golden Age Book gives a complete overview of the art from one of the most remarkable periods in Dutch history. The seventeenth century is often known as the Dutch Golden Age, not only because of the great wealth the country amassed but also because of the impressive cultural flowering. The art of painting in particular reached a high point with exquisite landscapes, still lifes, scenes from everyday life, marine pictures and church interiors. Throughout the century countless highly talented artists, Rembrandt, Vermeer and Frans Hals to name a few, created masterpieces that still evoke our admiration more than four centuries later.
