Abstract:

"Gerrit Dou, Rembrandt's first pupil, was lauded at an early age by his contemporaries as a model for other painters. His works, sought by collectors throughout Europe, fetched extremely high prices well into the eighteenth century. By the mid-nineteenth century, however, Dou's reputation had fallen into eclipse, and the works of a master whose fame had once equaled that of Rembrandt appeared only rarely, if at all, in exhibitions of Dutch art. In the last thirty years scholars have begun to reevaluate the artistic achievement of Gerrit Dou. This book, which accompanies the first international exhibition devoted exclusively to Dou's works, provides an opportunity to reassess the artist's achievements."--BOOK JACKET.
