New World Dutch Studies: Dutch Arts and Culture in Colonial America, 1609-1776 : Proceedings of the Symposium
The art, archaeology, history, and lifeways of New Netherland come vividly to life in these essays by world experts on both sides of the Atlantic. The wide range of objects used and manufactured by Dutch settlers in the New World reveals much about their social life and times. Of particular interest in this volume are Fort Orange pipe bowls, ceramics, wooden cellars and other perishable structures, cupboards, the town house, farming techniques and equipment, plates, seals, rural architecture, canals, and the evidence of New Netherland life gleaned from paintings and the Knickerbocker works of Washington Irving.
A companion to the widely praised Remembrance of Patria: Dutch Arts and Culture in Colonial America, 1609–1776, this volume offers in-depth descriptions and analyses of Dutch colonial life and material culture, as assessed by the leading scholars in the Netherlands and the United States.
