This volume examines the painting in relation to the artist's life and works, explores his stylistic development, and considers as well, his often complex relationship with other artists. "Pieter de Hooch" also looks at the subject matter of the piece within the broader historical context of seventeenth - century Dutch concepts of domesticity and parenthood, whilst tying it to other social and cultural developments of the period.

Wayne Francis is Professor of Fine Arts at Syracuse University and is a specialist on 17th century Dutch art. He is also author of numerous publications on similar subjects.
