Became the Republic of the United Provinces, this small country, now Holland, has seen the emergence of many painters and artists. Separating from the Catholic Church and becoming a Protestant Republic, the orders of the Church and the Aristocracy have ceased. The artists turned to another audience: the rich bourgeoisie and the peasantry, which explains the small formats of the paintings. To meet the demand, painters specialized in landscape, animal painting and still life. It is these original themes of the golden age of Dutch painting that Marc Salvan-Guillotin, Doctor of Art History, will address in his lecture.
