The Golden Age

In the Golden Age, the Republic of the United Netherlands develops into a world power. Trade with the East and the countries around the Baltic Sea, the colonies in Asia, Africa and America and the military successes ensure that a large group of wealthy citizens is created. As a result, artists are no longer dependent on commissions from churches and nobles, but can choose their subjects themselves and sell their paintings through art dealers. This has enabled some world-famous painters, such as Rembrandt van Rijn, Johannes Vermeer and Frans Hals to create their works. You can still see many things on the street that can be traced back to the Golden Age.
