The Dutch invented the genre of landscape painting as we know it today. The flat, low-lying Netherlands does not boast the world’s most dramatic scenery, yet probably no place on earth was so often painted. The 17th-century Netherlanders loved their land which they worked so hard to reclaim from the sea, and maritime themes were naturally popular in a seafaring nation like the Netherlands. In today’s virtual tour we’ll examine those 17th-century Dutch artists who created the marvelous views of land and sea which populated Dutch homes.
