This is an illustrated exploration of the artist, his life and context, with a gallery of 300 of his finest works. This is an expert and in-depth reference book on the life and works of the influential Dutch painter and etcher, Rembrandt van Rijn. This is a fascinating biography that explores his early years, his personal life and the historical context of the early 17th century. It analyzes his creative progress and the artistic influences that led him to develop his work from the grand Baroque to a less exuberant style. It includes a stunning gallery of all his greatest and most significant works, with expert analysis of his style and technique. It is beautifully illustrated with 500 reproductions of paintings and drawings. There is a comprehensive picture gallery that shows more than 300 significant works of Rembrandt, including "The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp", "The Holy Family", "Self Portrait with Two Circles" and "The Storm on the Sea of Galilee". The renowned Dutch artist Rembrandt van Rijn was born in the 17th century at a time known as the Golden Age of Dutch Art. This richly illustrated volume explores Rembrandt's early life in The Netherlands, his friends and family and his education and relationships. From his birth in 1606, it details the progression of his prodigious talent, his mastery of chiaroscuro and his amazing artistic skill. The volume also presents a beautiful gallery with a huge range of portraits, landscapes, drawings and etchings, including several large, dramatic canvases in the elaborate Baroque style.
