MAIN EXHIBITION

REMBRANDT and THE DUTCH GOLDEN AGE

In the seventeenth century, the Dutch Republic enjoyed unprecedented wealth and prosperity and the period is known asthe Dutch Golden Age. Painting and the decorative arts flourished in this small, predominantly Protestant nation in northwest Europe, which gained independence from the Catholic Kingdom of Spain in 1648 after nearly a century of intermittent war. At a time when the nobility and the Catholic Church were still the major patrons of art in the rest of Europe, an urban mercantile elite became the chief consumers of art in the new Dutch Republic. This is a significant difference that shaped the type of paintings produced in the Netherlands. Dutch art was made primarily for ordinary homes and secular buildings, not palaces or churches, and the subject of paintings included portraits of modest husbands and wives, exquisite still-lifes, seascapes with battleships, tranquil domestic interiors, and raucous tavern scenes as well as didactic religious scenes.
