Hi I'm Koorosh Angali with Angali.com. What do we consider Dutch painters? Normally towards the end of the fourteenth century. Some of the Northern European artists started joining the big art movement of the time which eventually was to be called the Renaissance period. And most of these artists were from the Northern part of Europe. It's an area which is called the lowlands. Now this doesn't necessarily have to be limited to that area. Some artists could be immigrants as well. But basically the artists from Holland, from Flanders, and all these areas generally speaking are considered Dutch painters. Among the most famous of these painters, these artists, are probably Hubert and Jan Van Eyck, starting the oil painting at some point or at least promoting the oil paining at the beginning of the birth of the oil painting at some point. And there is definitely Rubens, Rembrandt, Rubens' loyal pupil Anthony Van Dyck. And these are the, Vermeer, these are the great names among many of what we consider the dutch painters.
