CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

Vision and visibilities in early modern Dutch art

Symposium: 12 September 2009

From the museum website, 31 August 2009

Vermeer, Rembrandt and the Golden Age of Dutch Art provides the point of departure for a symposium that brings together international scholars to explore new perspectives in early modern Dutch visual culture. Speakers will consider how vision and modes of depicting the world became mobilized for new political, religious and social ends: consumption, religious conflict, globalization and scientific discovery all influenced art-making in this explosively creative period.
