Investigating the significance of musical imagery in Dutch art of the 17th century, this scholarly catalogue features excellent reproductions (including many detail views) and substantial analyses of 47 paintings assembled primarily from private collections, among them still lifes, genre scenes, portraits and allegories by Steen, Ostade, Metsu, De Witte, Molenaer, Eeckhout, Wouwerman and 36 other figures. Supplemented by brief biographies of the artists and documentation of eight period instruments, four lengthy essays explicate the symbolism of music-related themes in Netherlandish painting of the Golden Age, compare art historical and musicological approaches to the interpretation of the featured pieces, profile the principal Dutch composers of the period, and examine 17th-century Dutch collections of musical instruments.
