Knickerbocker New York

Knickerbocker New York
The course will begin with a survey of seventeenth-century Dutch art and history as reflected in the paintings of Rembrandt, Vermeer, Hals, Ruisdael, and de Hooch. Through the writings of Washington Irving (whose pen name was Dietrich Knickerbocker) and the paintings of John Quidor, we will then explore the Dutch life and culture of seventeenth-century New York as well as its eventual demise and destruction in the nineteenth century. In our examination of Knickerbocker New York, we will also focus upon the historical and legendary figures of Peter Stuyvesant, Anthony Van Corlear, Wolfert Webber, Ichabod Crane, and Rip Van Winkle.
