Dutch seventeenth-century genre painting : its stylistic and thematic evolution by Wayne E Franits( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author approaches genre paintings from a variety of perspectives, examining their reception among contemporary audiences and setting the works in their political, cultural, and economic contents. The works emerge as distinctly conventional images, Franits shows, as genre artists continually replicated specific styles, motifs, and a surprisingly restricted number of themes over the course of several generations. Illustrated and with a full representation of the major artists and the cities where genre painting flourished, this book will interest students, scholars, and general readers alike."--Jacket
Paragons of virtue : women and domesticity in seventeenth-century Dutch art by Wayne E Franits( Book )

24 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paragons of Virtue: Women and Domesticity in Seventeenth-Century Dutch Art is the first systematic analysis of paintings of domestic themes, which were among the most popular and endearing images produced by Dutch artists during the Golden Age. Focusing on their broader function and significance within Dutch culture, this study has made extensive use of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century family treatises that are important sources for understanding these paintings. These hortatory texts are significant because they reflect contemporary attitudes toward women as they are paradigmatically presented as maidens, as housewives skilled in the administration of household affairs, as attentive mothers, and as pious widows. In short, family literature corroborates the existence of general ideals as well as specific ideas about women and domesticity as expressed through art. Through its rich source material and the paintings themselves, Paragons of Virtue sheds further light on the position of women in seventeenth-century Dutch society and on the critical role that art played in early modern Europe in espousing and maintaining the patriarchal status quo
Looking at seventeenth-century Dutch art : realism reconsidered by Wayne E Franits( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the lively tradition of scholarship on Dutch painting of the seventeenth century, scholars continue to grapple with the problem of how the strikingly realistic characteristics of art from this period can be reconciled with its possible meanings. With the advent of new methodologies, these debates have gained momentum in the past decade. Looking at Seventeenth-Century Dutch Art, which includes classic essays as well as contributions especially written for this volume, provides a timely survey of the principal interpretative methods and debates, from their origins in the 1960s to current manifestations, while suggesting potential avenues of inquiry for the future

The Ashgate research companion to Dutch art of the seventeenth century( Book )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the tremendous number of studies produced annually in the field of Dutch art over the last 30 years or so, and the strong contemporary market for works by Dutch masters of the period as well as the public's ongoing fascination with some of its most beloved painters, until now there has been no comprehensive study assessing the state of research in the field. As the first study of its kind, this book is a useful resource for scholars and advanced students of seventeenth-century Dutch art, and also serves as a springboard for further research. Its 19 chapters, divided into three sections and written by a team of internationally renowned art historians, address a wide variety of topics, ranging from those that might be considered "traditional" to others that have only drawn scholarly attention comparatively recently

1 edition published in 2015 in German and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit 19 Jahren zieht es Godefridus Schalcken (1673–1706) in die Werkstatt von Gerrit Dou, dem berühmten Rembrandt-Schüler und Begründer der Leidener Feinmalerei. Die illusionistische Malweise und der reiche Motivschatz der Leidener Schule prägen sein Schaffen. Doch spektakuläre Lichteffekte und ein sprühender Bildwitz machen seine Gemälde einzigartig. Dordrecht, London und Den Haag waren weitere Stationen seiner beeindruckenden Karriere. Fürstliche Auftraggeber wie der Florentiner Großherzog Cosimo III de‘ Medici oder Kurfürst Johann Wilhelm in Düsseldorf verschafften Schalcken internationalen Ruhm. Der Katalog dieser weltweit ersten Ausstellung seines Werkes präsentiert facettenreich Virtuosität, Sinnlichkeit und Brillanz seiner Kunst, die den Betrachter unmittelbar in ihren Bann zieht. 00Exhibition: Wallraf Richartz Museum, Köln, Germany (25.09.2015-24.01.2016)
