The Syracuse University Humanities Center and the Department of Art and Music Histories presents a lecture by Stephanie S. Dickey, Bader Chair in Northern Baroque Art at Queen’s University (Canada).

Abstract: The seventeenth century has long been called the “golden age” of Dutch art and culture, but that term has recently come under fire. Rembrandt, Vermeer, and their contemporaries served a society remarkable for its cultural creativity, religious tolerance, and proto-capitalist entrepreneurship, but Dutch colonial enterprise produced wealth at the expense of suffering. In her talk, she will explore how the art of the Dutch Republic offers a perspective on issues relevant to global society today.
