The last lecture of the series Closer to Holland will be devoted to allegories in Dutch and Flemish art of the seventeenth century. In the Netherlands, as elsewhere, historical representations and allegories enjoyed prestige. Their meaning is not always clear at first glance. During the meeting, it will be possible to learn more about the subjects of paintings painted at that time. Their broad overview will give a new look at the richness of culture of that period.
