Dutch paintings of the seventeenth century—the "Golden Age" of Rembrandt van Rijn, Frans Hals, and Johannes Vermeer—have been eagerly collected in America over the past two centuries. From its founding purchase in 1871 of Dutch landscapes, portraits, still lifes, and scenes of everyday life, the Metropolitan Museum now houses the finest and most comprehensive collection of Dutch pictures in the Western Hemisphere. This monumental publication, the first catalogue of the Museums 228 Dutch paintings dating from 1600 to 1800, celebrates an extraordinary collection.
