The Golden Age of Dutch Art Mark Earp.

The Dutch Golden Age, 1585-1685, is a remarkable part of world history – a small European country dominating commerce, trade and sea power across the globe. The legacy of this age is reflected today in the art which adorns all of the most prestigious galleries around the world. Mark Earp will discuss both famous and lesser known Dutch artists of the period including Rembrandt, Vermeer. He will give us an insight into the over 1000 artists who were in the Netherlands at that time.
