The Lure of the Local in the Dutch Golden Age
Christopher D.M. Atkins
In this illustrated lecture Christopher D.M. Atkins, Queens College and The Graduate Center/The City University of New York, will explore why Dutch artists increasingly decided not to travel internationally during a period when their Flemish, French, and Italian counterparts frequently did. He will also reflect on how this decision led to depictions of sites and activities culled from their local surroundings, images for which the Dutch Golden Age is so well known. This lecture is cosponsored by the Drawing Institute.
Tuesday, April 3, 2012, 6:30 p.m.*

Tickets: $15 for Non-Members; $10 for Members
*The exhibition Rembrandt’s World: Dutch Drawings from the Clement C. Moore Collection will be open at 5:30 pm especially for program attendees.
