Art and Thought in the Dutch Republic: Erasmus Lectures on the History and Civilization of the Netherlands and Flanders (Part 1)
Food for Thought: Still Life as a Mode of Contemplation

In this lecture, Professor Grootenboer brings a fresh perspective to Dutch visual culture, demonstrating how art and thought were intertwined and how painting can be a form of thinking—for both 17th- and 21st-century viewers.

Led by: Hanneke Grootenboer, Professor of the History of Art at Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands, and the 2021 Erasmus Lecturer on the History and Civilization of the Netherlands and Flanders at Harvard University
