Reflections on Seventeenth-Century Dutch Still Life Painting

Harry Berger

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • This book completely remakes how we see Dutch still-life painting, tying its themes in unprecedented and convincing ways to the historical experience of Dutch people in the Golden Age.
  • Remakes our understandings of iconography and its function, going all the way back to Panofsky's development of those many decades ago.
  • The text is like taking a gallery tour with the most fascinating lecturer one could imagine. Berger writes like a dream--eloquent and accessible--and his decades of brillant teaching are distilled in how this book teaches one, in looking at paintings, to see.
