Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (1606 1669) was a leading light of the 17th-century Dutch Golden Age of art and one of the most famous painters of all time. His prodigious talent, extraordinary emotional truth, and reckless disregard of artistic convention astonished, delighted, and often dismayed his contemporaries. He is best known for his incredibly realistic portraits as well as his dynamic etchings and illustrations of scenes from the Bible. Greg Watts traces the development of Rembrandt's work alongside his life's story, showing how his personal life found its way onto his canvas, in this compact but thorough look at the life of one of Europe’s most beloved artists.
