From "Acknowledgments" by H. Nichols B. Clark:
"Dutch art - especially the Golden Age of Rembrandt and Vermeer - has held great appeal to Americans since the early 19th century. Americans, like the 17th century Dutch, were concerned with forging a national identity. Landscape, portraiture, genre, and still-life helped achieve this goal visually. Each of these artistic objectives was steeped in narrative, and viewers became attuned to reading stories visually."
