The 17th century was a time of unrivalled prosperity for Holland, and became known as its ‘Golden Age’. Merchants and the middling classes in particular enjoyed a high standard of living, consuming luxurious food wearing and rich clothes. Music was also an important aspect for this society, displaying an individual’s accomplishments and refinement. It also often provided the soundtrack for romance, featuring in scenes of love and courtship. Hear more about this splendid, large portrait of a man with a lute, attributed to a little-known, Antwerp-based artist.
