Rembrandt


Rembrandt van Rijn, (born 1606, Leiden). He was a Dutch painter, one of the greatest storytellers in the history of art, possessing an exceptional ability to render people in their various moods and dramatic guises. Rembrandt is also known as a painter of light and shade and as an artist who favoured an uncompromising realism. His approach to composition and his rendering of space and light like his handling of contour form, and colour, his brushwork, and his treatment of line and tone are subject to gradual transformation, even within a single work. The painting known as Night Watch (1640/42) was clearly a turning point in his stylistic development. Rembrandt quickly became known among Dutch art lovers and an art-buying public for his history paintings and etchings, as well as his portraits and self-portraits. His unusual etchings brought him international fame during his lifetime, and his drawings, which in fact were done as practice exercises or as studies for other works, were also collected by contemporary art lovers. He was venerated during the Romantic era and was considered a forerunner of the Romantic Movement from that point he was regarded as one of the greatest figures in art history.
