Perspectives on the Dutch Golden Age
This session aims to explore the historiography and reception of Dutch art produced in the period c. 1575-1700: how artists, admirers, and critics from the seventeenth century to the present have responded to art of the era known as the “Dutch Golden Age”. We welcome case studies that reflect on topics such as: theoretical appraisals of Dutch art and artists; literary adaptations of artists’ lives for the popular audience; print reproductions of Dutch painting in the 18th and 19th centuries; emulation of Dutch artists in 19th century France;  the rediscovery of Vermeer and Frans Hals; poetic responses to Dutch art; the changing reception of Rembrandt and other artists; Dutch art through the lens of methodologies such as feminism or post-colonialism; the collecting and connoisseurship of Dutch art in Canada and elsewhere; and other themes. 

Proposals must include the following: name, email address, and brief biography of the speaker, including institutional affiliation and rank (150 words maximum); title of proposed paper; abstract (300 words maximum).
Speakers must be members of UAAC at the time of the conference and are responsible for their own expenses. For more on UAAC and the conference see:
