Description

Volker Manuth, Marieke de Winkel, and Rudie van Leeuwen

The Dutch Golden Age of painting spawned some of history’s greatest artists and artisans, but few can boast of the genius of Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–1669). Despite never leaving his native Netherlands, Rembrandt produced some of the most diverse and impactful works in the world, including portraiture as well as biblical, allegorical, landscape, and genre scenes. On the occasion of the 350th anniversary of the artist’s death, this oversized monograph compiles stunning reproductions of all 330 of Rembrandt’s paintings. Rembrandt’s painted works are built of intricacies—the subtle wrinkles, gazes, and figures amounting to an emotional force that stands unmatched among his contemporaries and artistic progeny—and the large format of the book allows the reader to take in those details. From Belshazzar’s Feast (1636–8) to The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp (1632), discover Rembrandt’s painted oeuvre like never before.

Editorial Reviews

“Rembrandt works on paper as you’ve never seen them before.” —spectator.co.uk

“Taschen’s outsize, close-up format works superbly for Rembrandt, who built his compositions on intricate details evoked in fabulously free, loose marks, every stroke its own drama, animating portraits, spiritual narratives, everyday scenes; texture, colour, light all resonate here.” —The Financial Times, London

“With these books, you have brought Rembrandt into the 21st century.” —David Hockney
