  • What is the Baroque Era? The 17th Century Baroque era in Holland was the Dutch Golden Age, a time of extraordinary prosperity and social solidarity of the merchant class. A flourishing local and international commerce provided the economic key to an envied Dutch standard of living. There was a strong middle-class market for contemporary Dutch art which reflected pleasure in life, good times and the general abundance of products from around the world. e.g. spices, silk, cotton, porcelain. Being predominately Protestant, there were no church commissions given; rather, patronage came from the thriving middle class who bought art in commercial art galleries. (Grisham)
