Views on Dutch Painting of the Golden Age (2015/16)
Painters in the Dutch Republic in the 17th century pushed the possibilities of art far beyond previous limits. They observed the visible world closely and mastered techniques for representing it. They found new meanings in old stories—mythical, historical, and biblical—and staged and restaged scenes from the everyday human comedy. In this lecture series, presented in conjunction with an installation of paintings from the superb collection of Rose-Marie and Eijk van Otterloo and taking place from September 2015 through March 2016, nine leading scholars in the field of Dutch art speak about these and other subjects

Food for Thought: Pieter Claesz. and Dutch Still Life 1:06:58
The Dutch are famous for still-life paintings. These began with sober arrangements of objects chosen to remind viewers of the brevity of life, as can be seen in the early works of the pioneer Pieter Claesz. Later artists went on to paint sumptuous compositions of expensive objects that reflect the confidence and pride of the Golden Age. John Walsh, B.A. 1961, Director Emeritus of the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, and a specialist in Dutch paintings, explores the motives for still-life painting and the likely responses of 17th-century audiences.
