Abstract:

"To mark the 200th anniversary of the founding of the Dutch National Art Gallery (later the Rijksmuseum), it was decided to bring together all the greatest masterpieces of the Golden Age, both those that remained at home and those that had been dispersed throughout the world, to make a definitive exhibition celebrating that wonderful century. This book is a record of that exhibition and a way of giving it permanent form. All the exhibits are reproduced in colour and linked by brief commentaries providing information on the artists, their social background and patronage. It includes not only paintings but also examples of the applied arts of the time, from silver by the brothers Van Vianen and tapestries by Francois Spierings to exquisite pieces of Delftware."--BOOK JACKET.
