Rembrandt: The Late Works (Hardback)

Rembrandt: The Late Works (Hardback)



Jonathan Bikker and Gregor J. M. Weber

With Marjorie E. Wieseman and Erik Hinterding

And with contributions by Marijn Schapelhouman and Anna Krekeler

From the early 1650s until his death in 1669 at the age of 63, Rembrandt produced a remarkable body of work. Far from diminishing as he aged, and despite profound personal and professional setbacks, his creativity gathered fresh energy as he consciously searched for a new style that was both expressive and meaningful. In many ways it is the art of these late years, with its original interpretations of traditional subjects – whether portraits, studies from life or biblical histories – that defines our image of Rembrandt as a man and as an artist. These works include some of the most familiar and best loved of Rembrandt’s paintings: A Woman bathing in a Stream; his unflinching Self Portrait at the Age of 63; and ‘The Jewish Bride’; as well as a large number of his extraordinary etchings, and many drawings in pen, ink and wash that demonstrate his mastery of the graphic medium.

Through a series of thematic essays, the authors examine topics ranging from self-scrutiny and the observation of everyday life, to Rembrandt’s portrayal of light, his experimental techniques, and his engagement with the work of other masters. The book stands as a complete reappraisal of Rembrandt’s later years, which considers his output on both canvas and paper.
