17th Century Dutch Painting From the Hunterian Art Gallery

Given the opportunity to research in depth a sample of works by thirteen 17th century Dutch artists represented in the collections of the Hunterian Art Gallery, University of Glasgow students have produced the results of their investigations on this website. As well as looking at portraits, still life, genre and landscapes, the students considered the markets and guilds involvement in these works. This website also provides information on the artists' studio, how they worked, and the realistic rendering of subject matter. A report is also included on their reconstruction of the materials and method employed by the artists.
