This month’s topic is The Golden Age of Dutch Art – Mark Earp.

The Dutch Golden Age, 1585-1685, is a remarkable part of world history – a small European country dominating trade, commerce, and maritime power across the globe. The legacy of that time is reflected today in the art that adorns all of the world’s most prestigious galleries.

Mark Earp will discuss famous and lesser-known Dutch artists of the time, including Rembrandt and Vermeer. It will give participants an overview of the more than 1000 artists who were in the Netherlands at that time.

The Arts Society is a leading arts education charity with a global network of over 380 local societies, who bring people together through a common curiosity for the arts. The events provide welcoming venues – locally, nationally and globally – to hear expert speakers share their expert knowledge of the arts.

There are over 90,000 members around the world who contribute to, learn and help preserve their artistic heritage.
