Hardback book to accompany The Watson Gordon Lecture Series 2007; Sound, Silence and Modernity in Dutch Pictures of Manners. This lecture, the second in the series, was given by Mariët Westermann, then Director of the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. Professor Westermann is a widely-published scholar in the field of seventeenth-century Dutch art. Her highly stimulating lecture explores the pensive and the raucous, the reflective and the ribald, in an engagingly wide range of paintings.
