Art History
General project description

The art of the Dutch ‘Golden’ Age has many non-Western elements, from the Islamic scarf of Vermeer’s Girl with Pearl Earring to Rembrandt’s Chinese porcelain. The project ‘The Dutch Global Age’ examines how Netherlandish art has contributed to a global worldview and demonstrates the contemporary relevance of Netherlandish Old Masters in a globalizing world. 

Individual project description

My specific subproject will identify and decipher the ways in which Netherlandish artists made sense of and represented the diverse natural environments they encountered around the world and how this was adapted for a global audience.
