Description

This sweeping overview of Rembrandt’s extraordinary achievement as a draughtsman fills a gap in the otherwise enormous literature on the artist. Beautifully illustrated, mostly in colour, the more than 150 drawings – culled from a corpus of some 800 – are discussed in detail. The drawings span Rembrandt’s entire productive life as an artist, from early self-portraits in the 1620s to late drawings from the 1660s of the victim of an execution, a state coach, and historical and mythological images. The scope of the book allows readers to delve into the very broad range of Rembrandt’s oeuvre of drawings.
