My friends, you are about to see an overview, on the thought, of Dutch Golden Age Painting.
Only because of the Dutch Republic, was there a Golden Age.
WHAT DID THE DUTCH GOLDEN AGE SPAN?
It spanned the 17th hundred years, of our Lo'ward, while, and after, the later time, of the Eighty Years War for Dutch freedom.

When did we fight, to get our freedom? Between the years, of our Lo'ward 1568 and 1648.
Well, you don't "hear" an overview.
A "view" is visual.

THE HISTORICAL BACKGROUND
TO THE DUTCH GOLDEN AGE

Always have the Bible-based free states been the happiest, and the most prosperous.
Always have our Bible-based cultures been foremost in knowledge, trade, and in art.
So was the Dutch Republic.
FLANDERS WAS MORE ARTISTIC
Erst were the towns, of Flanders, more artistic.

FLEMINGS SHOVED OUT INTO NETHERLANDS (LOWLANDS) AND ALSACE
But the war displaced many oil painting artists into the Netherlands, the lowlands, and many into Alsace. Those, who went to Alsace, stayed Barock.
But those oil painting artists, who went to Holland, began a new kind, of art.
DUTCHMEN BROKE SHARPLY FROM ABSOLUTISM
The breakin, from absolutism, that is, to say, from monarchy, and from papism, was a sharp one.
The Dutch painters had new feelins to work out, and they did well at it.
DUTCH GOLDEN AGE ART OIL PAINTING SIMILAR TO AND DIFFERENT FROM BAROQUE
That, which it does not show, is bestness and splendour. The latter have been found more in the Barock kind.
WHENCE CAME ABSOLUTISM?
Absolutism is from Finda's. Decorative arts belon more to Finda's, and to Lyda's instincts, than to our own.
2 kinds of people.
At first, they were, in many ways, of opposite natures. Ultimately, the more they mixed, the more unforeseeable became their bents.
WE SHUNNED CITIES
In the raw, our people shunned cities, and the other people, the stranger, kept in them. Ours elected headmen, while the other was dominated by force, by monarchs, police, and emperors;
ours formed modestly sized societies, while the other formed empires. Ours built modest-sized buildins, while the other built towers and skyscrapers.
Our folk relied on God and on work, the other upon sorcery, skullduggery, covert action, and exploitation, of the work of others.
Ours felt close to God, the other imposed itself as a go-between, separatin the masses from God, in order to dominate them.
The second type of people engaged in decorative arts, while our type did not. The women, our type of people, admired and desired the decorative objects, made by the second type.
Our folk was honest and straightforward, while the other relied upon psychology, scams, and schemes, with wheelin and dealin.
In the area of enjoyment and beauty, our folks require less stimulation, to generate a greater emotional response, whereas the stranger must have the bright colors, the loud or elaborately prepared music, the fancy, as different, from the simple, or the plain.
THAT, WHICH WE DID
Our folk were inventors and producers. The others were distributors, merchandisers ("sto' people" -- "store" people).
In time, the two types interbred. Afterward you might find, in the same family, one sib who shuns cities, while the other adores them. One sib is into decorative art, while the other is into practical art.
WHENCE CAME THE OVERLAP, AND THE SPREADIN, AND THE DILUTION?
In any particular whereabouts, whichever type may be dominant, the other type, growin up amon them, picks up their ways, yet modifies them to fit their own nature a little better.
COMPARIN BAROQUE ART OIL PAINTING TO DUTCH GOLDEN AGE FAMOUS PAINTINGS
The Dutch Golden Age culture leans more toward our own nature, while the Baroque culture arose out of the presence, in our lands, of an alien force.
However, just the act, alone, of makin decorative items, shows the alien's influence, either genetically, or by upbringin and cultural standard-settin.
Here are some differences, between the Dutch Golden Age movement, and the Baroque cultural movement
UNLIKENESS #1. BAROQUE MOVEMENT ASSOCIATED WITH ANTI-FREEDOM
The baroque movement has been taught, in schools, as bein linked, with the anti-freedom, of the "priests from the East".
UNLIKENESS #2. THE ANTIBIBLE MOVEMENT, LAUNCHED AT THE COUNCIL OF TRENT, GAVE BIRTH, TO THE BAROCK MOVEMENT
The most respectable sources have said, repeatedly, that the baroque movement came from the Council of Trent. The Inception, and the spreadin, of it has been documented in large amount of detail. The Dutch Golden Age came from those, of us, who stick to the Bible, which condemns Rome and the papacy.
UNLIKENESS #3. FREEDOM AGAINST ABSOLUTISM
The Baroque movement is associated with absolutism, which means dominance through threat of punishment and violence, and a form of government wherein the ruler is an absolute dictator.
The Dutch Golden Age, is, on the other hand, associated with freedom, and the Dutch Republic .
UNLIKENESS #4. BIBLE AGAINST THE BABYLONIAN SYSTEM, LED BY THE PAPACY
The Counter Reformation, or Catholic Revival, spawned the baroque movement. Naetheless, the bein, of important baroque art and architecture, in non-absolutist and Biblical states, all through Western Europe gives heed, to its widely spread appeal.
Much, of Dutch Golden Age Fine Art Paintings, have many Barock traits.
THE HERITAGE, OF THE LOWLANDS, STOOD OUT FROM ITS BAROCK SURROUNDINS
That selfsame heritage, is the showin of realistic scenes, rather than ideal, with much detail.
BRANCHIN AND TWIGGIN, AND EN-SUNDRY-IN, OF KINDS OF ORIGINAL PAINTINGS
The fullest growth, of aforesaid specializin, was since the late 1620s.
The core, of Golden Age Fine Art Painting, was from the late 1620's, until the French invasion of 1672.
RELIGIOUS GENRES, OF ORIGINAL PAINTINGS, WENT BY
For the first time, in the saga of Europe, were but precious little of religious fine art paintings.
Dutch Calvinism forbade religious fine art paintings in churches.
Biblical subjects were acceptable in private homes.
Nevertheless, but few religious fine art paintings were made.
Nevertheless, in the time were done, more, a huge variety of other kinds.
Said kinds were undercleft into sundry specialized underkinds.
Here are some ensamples:
Elsewhere, the Dutch oil painting artists, of the 17th hundred years, of our Lo'ward, bent the painters, of later times, into their own mold.
At the time, folks knew of a thought, called, the "rankin of kinds" in oil paintings.
By that thought, some kinds, of oil paintings, were thought, to be more prestigious, than were others.
Thus, many painters wanted to make artist oil paintings of saga.
The latter were sold much more easily.
In rank, higher to lower, the kinds, in the rankin, were:
The Dutch painters kept mainly to the "lower" categories.
It is not to be thought, that they spurned the thought, of the rankin.
WHAT WERE THE SIZES, OF THE ARTIST OIL PAINTINGS?
Most artist oil paintings, of the kind, were smaller.
Only group oil portraits were big, usually.
WHEREON PAINTED THEY?
In the main, oil paintings were not done onto walls.
Walls were decorated with fitted canvas, with a frame.
The painters liked to paint on wooden panels, because they could get more precision.
Much, of the rest, of Europe, had passed by wooden panels, by that time.
Some painters painted on plates of copper.
Most of the plates had been aforeused to make prints.
FEWER OIL PAINTINGS HAVE SURVIVED. HERE'S WHY...
In the next 200 years, it was cheaper to paint over the lower quality Golden Age oil paintings, than to buy new canvas, stretcher, and frame.
OF DUTCH GOLDEN AGE SCULPTURE
Not much sculpting was done.
The 3 kinds, that were mainly done, were:
WHAT ARTWORKS OVERWEENED SCULPTURE?
Instead of sculptin, silverware and ceramics were made
Painted delftware tiles were very cheap and common. Ordinarily, they were mediocre.
Silver, led Europe. Mainly that silver, which was made, in the shape of ears, led Europe.
Other, than silverware and ceramics, the best art, of the time, and the place, was painted or printed.
HOW MUCH ARTWORK WAS MADE?
Folks, from outside, of the Lowlands, told that huge numbers, of artworks, were made.
Outsiders said, also, that big fairs were done. Many original paintings were sold, at the big fairs.
Someone roughly reckoned, that 1.3 million Dutch pictures were painted, from the year, of our Lo'ward, 1640, to the year, of our Lo'ward, 1660.
HOW WERE THE PRICES?
Many artists did not support themselves well, with money. It is my opinion, they should have been makin war on the Vatican, instead of makin art for sale.
French invasion of 1672 (the Rampjaar, or "year of disaster"), brought low the art market, which never went back up.
Quoth an English traveler, 1640
"yea many tymes, blacksmithes, cobblers etts., will have some picture or other by their Forge and in their stalle. Such is the generall Notion, enclination and delight that these Countrie Native have to Painting".
WHAT WAS THE NEW INSTITUTION?
There were for virtually the first time those, who gained their livelihood, by sellin art for sale.
Some, of the art sellers, were also oil painting artists:
Rembrandt's dealer Hendrick van Uylenburgh and his son Gerrit were amon the most important.
