After the death of Rembrandt, the classicist painter Gerard de Lairesse (1640-1711) quickly became one of the most popular painters in the Dutch Republic. Famous in his time, he was all but forgotten in the following centuries; this book responds to a growing appreciation of his oeuvre and ideas. It offers an accessible introduction - the first of its kind - to De Lairesse's life and work, paying special attention to the historical and artistic context of the late seventeenth-century Dutch Republic.
