Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–69) is considered one of the greatest painters and printmakers that ever lived. Together with Rubens, he was the foremost artist of what is known as the Golden Age of Dutch art, and he taught many of the major Dutch artists of the subsequent generation. Beginning with an introduction to the life of the artist, this beautifully illustrated giftbook presents a thematic selection of etchings and drawings by Rembrandt. The author looks at Rembrandt's themes, including his portraits and self-portraits, landscapes and mythological and historical subjects, and explores his techniques of drawing and printmaking. Both famous and rarely seen works are included – many of which have been newly photographed especially for this book – along with a handful of paintings from other collections.
