This sumptuous survey illuminates the extraordinary richness and versatility of the art produced in Holland in the seventeenth century -- the Dutch Golden Age. It is published on the occasion of an ambitious exhibition organized to celebrate the bicentenary of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

Paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, and the decorative arts: more than 200 works of art have been carefully selected from the extensive holdings of the Rijksmuseum and from museums and private collections around the world. The paintings and drawings -- portraits, landscapes, still lifes, genre painting, history painting -- include masterpieces by the renowned painters Hals, Rembrandt, Ruisdael, Steen, and Vermeer. The applied arts are represented by exquisite examples of Delftware, silver by the brothers van Vianen, tapestries by Francois Spiering, and more.

The accompanying text describes in detail the development and accomplishments of Dutch art in the seventeenth century. With its wealth of illustrations and extensive reference section, The Golden Age of Dutch Art provides the most comprehensive overview possible of this seminal period in Western art.
