Marisa Bass is writing a microhistory of the Dutch Revolt and its impact on the art and intellectual culture of the later sixteenth-century Netherlands. Her study centers around the artist Joris Hoefnagel, his itinerant career, his encyclopedic inquiry into the natural world, and his psychological response to wartime upheaval.
