Where would art be without the Dutch Golden Age? Not only would we not have some of the most beautiful works of art with us today but we also would not have many of the techniques artists use today to produce such amazing works. Students will be eager to learn and study all of the new techniques discovered during this unique time in art history. You can use this PowerPoint as a review, as part of a project, or a great way to introduce how art reflects history.
The PowerPoint includes the following-
Artists- Rembrandt, Vermeer, Frans Hals, and Willem van Aelst
Important works- The Night Watch. Girl with a Pearl Earing, The anatomy lesson, 100 guilder print, An allegory to painting, Young Man with Skull, and Still life with hunting gear and dead bird
