Union List Of Artist Names
The UNION LIST OF ARTIST NAMES (ULAN) is an online database using a controlled vocabulary currently containing around 293,000 names and other information about artists. Names in ULAN may include given names, pseudonyms, variant spellings, names in multiple languages, and names that have changed over time (e.g., married names). Among these names, one is flagged as the preferred name. Although it is displayed as a list, ULAN is structured as a thesaurus , compliant with ISO and NISO standards for thesaurus construction; it contains hierarchical, equivalence, and associative relationships. The focus of each ULAN record is an artist. Currently there are around 120,000 artists in the ULAN. In the database, each artist record (also called a subject in this manual) is identified by a unique numeric ID. Linked to each artist record are names, related artists, sources for the data, and notes. The temporal coverage of the ULAN ranges from Antiquity to the present and the scope is global

Dutch Golden Age Painter
DUTCH GOLDEN AGE PAINTING is the painting of the Dutch Golden Age , a period in Dutch history roughly spanning the 17th century, during and after the later part of the Eighty Years\' War (1568–1648) for Dutch independence. The new Dutch Republic
Dutch Republic
was the most prosperous nation in Europe and led European trade, science, and art. The northern Netherlandish provinces that made up the new state had traditionally been less important artistic centres than cities in Flanders
Flanders
in the south. The upheavals and large-scale transfers of population of the war, and the sharp break with the old monarchist and Catholic cultural traditions, meant that Dutch art had to reinvent itself entirely. The painting of religious subjects declined very sharply, but a large new market for all kinds of secular subjects grew up
