The Dutch Golden Age

On Friday 13 January 2023, we resumed our Art History Programme with more than 40 attendees. This time we will be looking at the Dutch Golden Age, but instead of the usual concentration on individual artists, we will be concentrating on the subjects of the pictures.

The first lecture concentrated on the sea – the means by which the Dutch people generated wealth in the 17th Century, and the cause of the many conflicts during that century.

Our lecturer Jennifer has an enormous wealth of knowledge on which to draw, and engages the audience in a warm and friendly way. The remaining topics we are looking forward to include The Land, The Towns, The Homes, The Taverns, Faith Fur and Feathers, Food and Flowers, and much more.
