Holland in the 17th century was home to the most remarkable concentration of artistic talent and accomplishment in modern history. From this tiny land came the great masters Vermeer, Frans Hals, Jan Steen, Pieter de Hooch, and Rembrandt, as well as an abundant assembly of memorable artists. To this day, these compelling pictures take our breath away - an unrivalled heritage of portraits, still lifes, landscapes, marine paintings, and profoundly observant images of everyday Dutch life that continue to grace museums throughout Europe and America. What was it that made Holland so special? And what of the extraordinary technical ability of Holland's artists? They commanded a realistic technique so descriptive and alive that their work seemed like a transcription of life itself. Many people today think of the Dutch artists as ""realists."" But is this really true? Were they, instead, the creators of a parallel reality - often preoccupied with concerns of faith and morality, and expressing deeper truths through the familiar realities they were painting? Dutch Masters: The Age of Rembrandt will introduce you to the art of 17th-century Holland. It traces the development of this renowned, independent school of painting, as well as the great seafaring nation that produced the new society that would be reflected in that new art. The course concludes with the achievements of Holland's greatest and most versatile genius, Rembrandt, whose range of work - including his remarkable etchings - claims the final seven lectures. Your introduction to this marvelous world is a visually sumptuous one, as Professor William Kloss shows you the work of more
