Rembrandt van Rijn Art

Rembrandt van Rijn (July 15, 1606, Leiden, Netherlands - October 4, 1669, Amsterdam, Netherlands) is generally considered one of the greatest painters in European art history and the most important painter in Dutch history. Rembrandt is known as a painter of light and shade and as an artist who favoured an uncompromising realism. Rembrandt possessed an exceptional ability to render people in their various moods and dramatic guises.

In all, Rembrandt produced over 600 paintings, 300 etchings, and 2,000 drawings. He was a prolific painter of self-portraits, producing almost a hundred of them throughout his long career. Together they give a remarkably clear picture of the man, his appearance, and - more importantly - his deeper being, as revealed by his face. His immediate family, his wife Saskia, his son Titus, and his common-law wife Hendrickje, often figured prominently in his paintings.

The core of Rembrandt's creative work, however, consists of biblical and - to a much lesser extent - historical, mythological, and allegorical paintings.

Among the prominent characteristics of his work are his use of chiaroscuro, the theatrical employment of light and shadow derived from Caravaggio but adapted for very personal means, his dramatic and lively presentation of subjects, devoid of the rigid formality, and a deeply felt compassion for mankind, irrespective of wealth and age.

Rembrandt's approach to composition and rendering of space and light - like handling of contour, form, and colour, his brushwork, and his treatment of tone - all this made Rembrandt's art immortal and everlasting. No artist ever combined more delicate skill with more energy and power.
