Dutch artists were diverse not only in terms of subject-matter but also geographically, for numerous towns developed vigorous traditions of painting and several of them became particularly associated with specific types of work.
Dutch architecture and sculpture also enjoyed something of a golden age in the 17th century, although the achievements in these fields are far outshone by those in painting.

In their impeccably executed paintings, Poussin and Claude (as the latter is known) set a mood by their choice of subject: somber ruins, a bucolic scene of a young man playing a flute, tunic-clad shepherds deciphering the inscription on a tombstone in idyllic, picturesque surroundings.
Genre painting became less boisterous and more subtle, less mechanical and more subjective, until it well-nigh resembled still-life painting; and the genre painters proved once and for all that it is not the nobility or beauty of the subject that makes a good painting---only the way the artist sees and records it.

To support his readings of these paintings, de Jongh marshaled an array of texts and prints, which in turn help to produce a picture of the broader cultural context for viewing these works.

In arguing for a return to considering the naturalistic look of so much Dutch painting and the larger scientific concerns it entailed, Alpers rightly pointed to a shortcoming in de Jongh's approach.
