Thoroughly examining the achievements of Haarlem painter Leyster (1609-1660) in the contexts of 17th-century Dutch culture and the art world of her time, this catalogue features fine color reproductions and extensive scholarly discussions of 16 genre and portrait works by the artist and of five canvases formerly attributed to her, while also presenting 25 paintings by Frans and Dirck Hals, Jan Miense Molenaer (Leyster's husband) and several other noted figures of the period. Seven essays explore Leyster's successful career as an independent artist prior to her marriage in 1636, examine her themes, her techniques and the formative influences on her style, trace the dynamic evolution of the art market in 17th-century Holland, and discuss the status of women in Dutch society of the time.
