Summary:The experience of a person today who views paintings by Rembrandt, Vermeer and other Dutch Old Masters differs radically from the experience of the Dutch man or woman who may have seen the same paintings three centuries ago. This is an exploration of the way in which paintings were displayed and comprehended in 17th-century Holland. It offers many insights into life in the Dutch Golden Age as well as ways of interpreting the paintings of this period.
