The Age of Rembrandt will introduce us to the art of 17th-century Holland. From this tiny land came great masters Vermeer, Frans Hal, Jan Steen, Peter de Hooch, and, of course, Rembrandt. Painting by painting, see how each artist's technical choices about composition, lighting, color, or brushstrokes contribute to a work's overall impact. Work by Dutch artists offer insights into history and commerce of the period. Their great religious works addressed the spiritual conflicts of the times. Based on a 36-segment Great Courses series.
