Rembrandt – part 7

Portrait of Rembrandt possibly by Dinon after "Self-Portrait" 1639 etching on China paper 11.2 x 9.1 cm Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven CT

Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (1606 – 1669) is considered one of the greatest painters and printmakers in European art and the most important in Dutch history. Having achieved youthful success as a portrait painter, Rembrandt’s later years were marked by personal tragedy and financial hardships. Yet his etchings were popular throughout his lifetime, his reputation as an artist remained high, and for twenty years he taught many important Dutch painters. His greatest creative triumphs are exemplified especially in his portraits of his contemporaries, self-portraits and illustrations of scenes from the Bible. His self-portraits form a unique and intimate biography, in which the artist surveyed himself without vanity and with the utmost sincerity.

This is part 7 of a 14 - part post on the works of Rembrandt. For full biographical notes see part 1, the introduction. For earlier works, see parts 2 - 6 also.
