The fame of seventeenth-century Dutch genre painting is well-established, but contemporary prints of similar subjects are virtually unknown. The authors have made a representative selection from the many Dutch and Flemish genre prints published between 1550 and 1700. In addition to a general introduction, which also covers the very earliest genre prints, this book contains eighty commentaries dealing with a single engraving, etching, woodcut or mezzotint, or with several prints designed as a series.
