Description: Bilbao: Guggenheim, 2010. 31cm., pbk., 305pp., 138 color plates. Spanish text. Exhibition catalogue. Summary: The Städel Museum in Frankfurt owns one of the most important collections of Dutch and Flemish art in the world. The present exhibition is comprised from a selection of these works, many of which had never been shown in Spain before, by masters such as Vermeer, Hals, Rembrandt, Van Goyen, Heem, or Van Ruisdael, among others. These works attest to the new tastes and values of an emerging bourgeoisie whose wealth derived from sea trade during Reformation times. The catalogue features examples of the genres that transformed the artistic scene in the 17th century: history, portraiture, genre, still life, and landscape, with essays and entries that present an overview of a very significant artistic period in the development of visual culture and European history.
