A fresh perspective on the celebrated Dutch painter Rembrandt van Rijn.

Rembrandt van Rijn and the Netherlands shared a profound connection. Born in Leiden in 1606, the artist witnessed the birth of the independent Dutch Republic. Settling in Amsterdam, Rembrandt gained renown as the city’s leading portraitist. However, his later years were marred by financial hardship and personal tragedy.

Now available in paperback, Rembrandt’s Holland offers a fresh perspective on this celebrated painter. The book explores his life alongside the visual culture of the emerging Dutch Republic, and reassesses his artistic journey from grand religious works to intimate drawings, etchings, self-portraits and emotive depictions of saintly figures. Featuring up-to-date research, profound analysis of Rembrandt’s major works and captivating imagery, this book is essential for art students and enthusiasts of the Dutch Masters.
