This lavishly illustrated book is an authoritative study of Dutch painting from 1600 to 1800 and covers all the major artists of the period — including Hals, Rembrandt, and Vermeer — setting them firmly in the wider context of Dutch art. It has immediately established itself as the new standard work on this great period of painting.

"Seymour Slive's text first appeared in 1966 in partnership with the late Jakob Rosenberg. It was wonderful then, and it is even more so now that Mr. Slive has revised and expanded his text, and the number of illustrations is now 432, about twice as many as before". — John Russell, New York Times Book Review

"Slive is a great teacher and he knows how to impart his enthusiasm to his readers…. This volume is the useful instrument which every user will hope and expect to find". — Lyckle De Vries, Burlington Magazine

"Like the original Pelican volume, this one is an essential reference and serves both the academic and the general reader". — Choice

I consider Slive’s book to be a basic purchase for an art historian. The text is authoritative, but dense; there are multiple illustrations, but many

Comprehensive Study of Dutch Painting

This is a comprehensive book covering 200 years of Dutch painting. Naturally, to cover such a long period, with so many outstanding artists in so many different genres, the discussion of many artists is rather brief, though the most stellar, such as Rembrandt, Frans Hals, Vermeer, are covered in some detail. As other reviewers have commented, the writing is rather dry, but the author’s purpose seems to be to provide a authoritative and comprehensive survey rather than an entertaining discussion. There are many, many illustrations and quite a large number of these illustrations are in color. I haven’t sent in a review before since I found that the book needs to be read slowly, a few pages at a time, to absorb the material included. It has helped me to better understand the art of the Golden Age of the Netherlands.

Such a thoughtful analysis of so many different aspects of art. It’s a must for anything with an interest not only in Dutch art but in art in general.

This is a really good book, with black and white and color photographs documenting 2 centuries of Dutch painting. It’s full of reproductions of Dutch masterpieces, some by lesser known but still extremely talented artists. I’m really enjoying going through this book. It’s well written and thorough,and I’d recommend it to anyone interested in Dutch art of this period.
