Dutch Seventeenth-Century Genre Painting: Its Stylistic and Thematic Evolution 24 Feb. 2006
By KLR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Franits gives a very thorough and leveled image of Dutch 17th century genre painting. He is careful to represent the various opinions that exist on genre painting and doesn't push his opinions too strongly. The book includes a complete bibliography, in-depth footnotes and a great deal of glossy colour images. This is the best book on genre painting since that of Peter Sutton.

Wayne Franits's Dutch Seventeenth Century Genre Painting 3 Mar. 2011
By Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Wayne Franits book is an indispensible publication on 17th-century Dutch genre painting. It is thorough and erudite, yet it is also accessible to the general reader.

A valuable monument of scholarly exploration 2 Oct. 2014
By Joseph B. Dallett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a suberb study, and one that is beautifully illustrated. I have yet to explore various parts of its readable text. And I haven't yet been able to plough through its critical apparatus. But I'm sure that I will be enlarging my understanding of the paintings it highlights for a long time to come.
