About this title

Synopsis:

The Dutch Republic in the seventeenth century was home to one of the greatest flowerings of painting in the history of Western art. Freed from the constraints of royal and church patronage, artists created a rich outpouring of naturalistic portraits, genre scenes and landscapes that circulated through a newly open market to patrons and customers at every level of Dutch society. Their closely observed details of everyday life offer a wealth of information about the possessions, activities and circumstances that distinguished members of social classes, from the nobility to the urban poor. The dazzling array of paintings gathered here from artists such as Frans Hals, Jan Steen and Gerrit Dou, as well as Rembrandt and Vermeer illuminated by essays by leading specialists, invite us to explore a vibrant early modern society and its reflection in a golden age of brilliant painting.

Review:

Rembrandt's Amsterdam feels modern because it was deeply materialistic. Wealth measured moral fibre, so inner rectitude could be read in the quality of clothes. This is what makes Class Distinctions appear to be as much about the 21st century as the 17th.--Ariella Budick "Financial Times "

Priceless insights into the workings and self-image of an entire society.... a deeply informative catalog.--Sebastian Smee "Boston Globe "
