The Dutch Golden Age
I'm in the process of adding the weekly lecture details.
Please be patient.
Vermeer: Tranquility amidst chaos - And you think your family is dysfunctional! The amount of wonderful and slightly scandalous new research on Vermeer’s family life will be revealed. This first lecture will be about Vermeer alone, but he will be included in many other talks along the way. There’s a lot to discuss.
The Family - Jan Steen is one of the most delightfully amusing artists to have ever cracked a joke on canvas. His myriad family vignettes and love scenes are chock full of allegory and visual depictions of traditional Dutch wisdom, making him eternally an artist of interest.
February 2 - Rembrandt
The Doctor’s Visit – From what does the maiden suffer? A Wandering Womb, A Thirsty Womb, Lovesickness, Green Sickness, Hysteria, or Uterine Fury….Hmmm...we’ll look into it. This is one of the most frequent and fabulous subjects of the Dutch Golden Age.
February 16 - One’s Christian Duty
The Letter – The development of letter writing manuals, and later, the penny post, gave middle and upper class women a certain delectable sense of freedom that was new to them. Providing you enjoyed the collusion of your domestic servant, you could have an innocent, though titillating relationship through the post with a man other than your husband. This became a favourite subject for some of the finest artists of the Dutch Golden Age.
