Lecture | 17th- and 18th-Century Dutch Design in the Global Marketplace

Posted in lectures (to attend) by Editor on March 29, 2016

Thursday at The Nelson-Atkins:

Catherine Futter, Reflecting on 17th- and 18th-Century Dutch Design in the Global Marketplace
The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, 31 March 2016

In this series, connected with the exhibition Reflecting Class in the Age of Rembrandt and Vermeer, four Nelson-Atkins curators reflect on themes presented in the exhibition, including the importance and legacy of 17th-century Dutch painting and depictions of the social classes in art. Works from across art-historical periods and the museum’s collections will be discussed.

With the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685 and the reach of the Dutch East India Company, Dutch designs spread to distant lands as far away as the American colonies and China. Join Catherine Futter, Director, Curatorial Affairs, for this talk that explores Dutch influence in ceramics, furniture, silver and other decorative arts.

Thursday, March 31
6-7 pm | Atkins Auditorium

    Any chance you will be doing this as a podcast too for those of us who live too far away? It sounds fascinating but as I live in the UK, I am going to have to forego the pleasure of attending!
    Thanks, and I’ll look up the exhibition website too.
