In the Louvre museum hangs a portrait of a middle-aged man with long dark hair, a mustache, and heavy-lidded eyes, and he is dressed in the starched white collar and black coat of the typical Dutch burgher. This title investigates the individuals and circumstances behind a small portrait.

this book explores the ideas of descarte by looking at the world he was living in. this as much about the culture that descarte lived in. it is about the relationships he had very enjoyable ( )

In the end, I don’t think "The Philosopher, the Priest, and the Painter" is entirely successful in connecting its three titular elements into an artistic unity. Nonetheless, the resulting survey of Golden Age Dutch culture, Cartesian philosophy and art connoisseurship still makes for heady and very welcome intellectual entertainment.
