Art on Fridayl; Dutch Golden Age

When we talk about the Dutch Masters, we usually mean Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Frans Hals, among others. These are the painters of the years between about 1605 and 1680: the Dutch Golden Age. This time period was a prosperous one for the New Dutch Republic, and the paintings are a simpler and more realistic version of the greater European Baroque period.

Johannes Vermeer-Diana and her companions
