The 17th Century Baroque era in Holland was the Dutch Golden Age, a time of extraordinary prosperity and social solidarity of the merchant class. A flourishing local and international commerce provided the economic key to an envied Dutch standard of living. Being predominately Protestant, there were no church commissions given; rather, patronage came from the thriving middle class who bought art in commercial art galleries.

Meet Victor Silverman and Laurie Glover authors of California: On-the-Road Histories - A witty, expansive narrative that reveals the real story of the people and places that make up the Golden State. From the European conquest to today's ecomonic crisis, Californians have experienced tumultuous growth and painful conflicts. Like the grinding of tectonic plates that has produced the state's very landscape, these encounters, disputes, and transformations have continuously made and remade California. California: On-the-Road History doesn't relate the cleaned-up tale of the California dream that school textbooks and the tourism commission tell. Rather it presents the sometimes bitter, sometimes triumphant history behind the California myth. Included are recommended museums, state parks, and other attractions, alongside literary experts from local authros who give readers a sense of California in different eras.
