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.
