17th-c. Dutch cityscapes

Read Blake Gopnik’s review of the current exhibit at the NGA of 17th-c. Dutch paintings.  It’s especially important here to note Gopnik’s point about HOW we are to view these paintings.  Be sure to view the Gallery!

    i really enjoyed looking at these paintings. i especially liked the side view that a majority of these paintings presented, it showed a different view of the objects. But, also i felt like i was there, not just looking at a painting, the different view made these artworks feel more realistic to me.

    i also enjoyed the bright colors that were used in some of these art works, they displayed nearly a perfect day, with a bright sky and colorful buildings. i was almost in awe as i examined several paintings.
