View All Available Formats & Editions


Rembrandt van Rihn defines an entire era of remarkable painting both for his innovation in interpretation and his adventurous technique. His many portraits, self-portraits, landscapes, and historical pieces demonstrate his singular talent as a painter and engraver, and reveal much about the man himself. This book looks at Rembrandt's life and art during a great period of culture and enlightenment that produced fellow artists Hals and Vermeer, and the philosopher Spinoza. Rembrandt lived during a "Golden Age" in seventeenth-century Holland. Travel back in time and discover the fascinating history of the period and the masterworks that have awed generations.
