Quodback ably describes the pictures exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art from September 2007 to January 2008, supplemented by superb color photographs. Along with information about the works by Rembrandt, Vermeer, de Hooch, Maes, Halls, and virtually every other painter of the time, Quodback describes how the exhibit came together, along with their provenance. She includes period photographs of early exhibitions related to the Dutch works and surprises here and there, such as passages of critical reviews and even cartoons. Distributed by Yale U. Press.
