Rembrandt's Light, Paperback / softback Book

Rembrandt's Light Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Rembrandt's Light brings together 35 carefully selected paintings that focus on Rembrandt's mastery of light and visual storytelling, concentrating on his greatest years from 1639-1658, when he lived in his ideal house at Breestraat in the heart of Amsterdam (today the Museum Het Rembrandthuis).

Its striking, light-infused studio was the site for the creation of Rembrandt's most exceptional paintings, prints and drawings including 'The Denial of St Peter' and 'The Artist's Studio'. Arranged thematically the book will trace Rembrandt's innovation: from evoking a meditative mood, to lighting people, to creating impact and drama.

Highlights will include three of Rembrandt's most famous images of women: 'A Woman Bathing in a Stream', 'A Woman in Bed' and the inimitable 'Girl at a Window'. Published to coincide with an exhibition at Dulwich Picture Gallery in 2019 with celebrations taking place throughout Europe to mark 350 years since the artist's death (1669), this publication aims to refresh the way we look at works by this incomparable Dutch Master.
