Drawings by Rembrandt and his Pupils: Telling the Difference
'Hands down one of the sexiest museum publications in recent memory.' - KCRW’s Art Talk
'The challenging task of separating the master’s work from pupils is handled with diligence, good judgment, and a freshness of approach.' - Historians of Netherlandish Art
Our understanding of Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (1606-1669) and his drawing style has undergone significant change in recent times. As a result, the number of drawings considered to be by Rembrandt has dropped from some 1400 in the late 1950s to about 800 today.
Organised chronologically, Drawings by Rembrandt and His Pupils: Telling the Difference is a groundbreaking study with over 200 colour illustrations that presents more than forty works by Rembrandt and related works by 15 of his most talented pupils. This catalogue from J Paul Getty Museum's exhibition of the same name, explores the history of attribution of drawings by Rembrandt and his pupils and defines the styles of his pupils and followers with ever-greater precision.
Recommended to anyone interested in the Dutch Golden Age or the lives and careers of Rembrandt and the artists in his immediate circle.
