About Golden Women
‘Golden Women of the 17th century’ unites 34 remarkable women who all made a mark on the seventeenth-century art production and consumption in one book, written by students of the University of Amsterdam accompanied by Judith Noorman, Art Historian in Early Modern Art History at the University of Amsterdam. The book is the result of her course ‘We are writing a book’. In this elective course, which is part of the Bachelor Degree in Art History, students learned about the role of seventeenth-century women in Dutch (art) history and how to write and edit a book. The course was won the Humanities Teaching Prize 2020 for its innovative use of didactic methods.
