Dutch Medals of the Golden Age

This Money Talks will be held live on Zoom. Members only. A Link will be made sent to members the day of the lecture.

Through its medallic history, Dr. Stephen Scher and Dr. Arnold-Peter C. Weiss highlight the importance of the Dutch Republic in the 17th century from its status as a trading powerhouse, its military prowess, its standing as the art center of Europe, and the technological revolution taking place at that time. With Dr. Scher discussing cast and struck medals and Dr. Weiss discussing engraved medals, they will contextualize the medallic art of this century and describe how these events shaped its production—specifically touching on the hollow “plaquette-penningen” and the engraved types, which are typically Dutch.

This lecture will be recorded and uploaded to YouTube for later viewing.
