about

Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-69), the son of a well-to-do miller from the university town of Leiden, was, by the age of twenty-six, Holland's most celebrated painter -- and he has remained an artist of universal appeal. Rembrandt made his name in Amsterdam, capital of the newly independent Dutch Republic and a magnet for merchants, writers and artists. No one understood its possibilities better than Rembrandt, or captured its personalities and landscapes more memorably.

Whether tracing the highs and lows of Rembrandt's career or explaining the unique qualities of his work, Mariet Westermann's book is always lucid and perceptive. Based on the latest Rembrandt research, it demonstrates splendidly how a contextual study can stimulate the reader's delight in the art itself.

Mariet Westermann is Associate Director of Research and Academic Programs, Clark Art Institute, Williamstown, Massachusetts, and earlier taught at Rutgers University, New Jersey.
