Rembrandt Harmenszoon Van Rijn remains one of the greatest artists the world has ever seen. His mastery of the brush still continues to influence successive generations of artists more than 400 years after his birth. Capturing the essence of the artist, his life and times, The Treasures of Rembrandt looks at the themes that dominated his work - the self-portraits, which are his lasting legacy to the world, alongside his many inspirational Biblical masterpieces; his etchings and drawings, including the tronies (character drawings of old people aiming to show them as realistically as possible); engravings and landscapes. Beginning with a look at the Golden Age of Dutch painting in which Rembrandt was to play such a huge part, this beautifully illustrated book covers his birth and childhood in Leiden, his move to Amsterdam and marriage to Saskia Uylenburgh, and his rise in fortune as he became one of the most prominent portrait artists of his generation and created such gems as The Night Watch.
