Rembrandt: The Late Works
'The catalog ... features meticulously reproduced details that bring the reader close to every brushstroke and crackle.' - Elle Decor
From the mid-1650s until his death at age sixty-three, Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669) generated a remarkable body of work that demonstrated his skilfulness and exceptional ability to render the effects of light, and has since defined his image as an artist.
This handsome volume published alongside the critically-acclaimed exhibition at the National Gallery and Rijksmuseum includes superb reproductions of some of Rembrandt's most recognisable paintings, alongside etchings and drawings in various media that demonstrate his mastery of the graphic medium.
Through a series of thematic essays, the authors draw on new research to examine Rembrandt's iconographic, stylistic and technical innovations and underscore how his work in one medium influenced his work in others. This captivating book is the first to focus exclusively on the paintings, drawings and prints that Rembrandt produced during the final, most creative phase of his career.
