With the towering figures of Peter Paul Rubens and Rembrandt van Rijn as bookends, this course examines art of the Netherlandish Baroque within its cultural and social contexts, with close attention to themes of religion, social morality, and humor. We will consider the significance of major artists, including Rubens, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Frans Hals, and others, in addition to important contributions by Northern Baroque artists to the development of portraiture, landscape, still life, and genre painting.
