Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–1669) never left his homeland, the Netherlands, but in his massive body of painting, drawing and etching, he changed the course of Western art. His prolific portfolio encompasses religious, historical and secular scenes, as well as one of the most extraordinary series of portraits and self-portraits in history.
In this book, we tour some of Rembrandt’s key paintings, etchings and drawings to introduce his techniques, inspirations and exceptional achievements. We uncover a world of deep, rich tones, masterful draftsmanship and a remarkable sensitivity for the human condition.
