    The 26 Dutch paintings examined here offer a compelling visual record of the tastes and values of a prosperous society mindful of its obligation to personal and public standards. The descriptive entries are accompanied by essays discussing the achievement of artists during the Golden Age of Dutch art and arguing that these paintings, with their ambiguous messages, entice viewers to choose from a variety of possible interpretations and to search for a personal morality.
