The Proceeds of Prosperity: Images of Domestic Money Management and Exchange in Dutch Genre Painting in the Middle of the Seventeenth Century provides a comprehensive study of genre paintings of household money management and exchange produced in the Netherlands in the middle of the seventeenth century. The manner in which the seventeenth-century Dutch chose to view their peers relating to money serves as a locus for the exploration of the larger early modern economy and society as a whole. Images of money weighing and account keeping, the purchase of comestibles, private charity, and prostitution, responded pictorially to selected social pressures felt by the urban upper class through a visual demarcation of public and private realms marked also by divisions of class and gender. Paintings of money management and exchange reveals a society with complex views of monetary transactions and the individuals involved in such economic activities.
