Rembrandt’s reputation as one of the greatest artists of all time has been fully recognized for more than a century. Yet here, we believe, is the first comprehensive study of Rembrandt’s many-sided art that is both readable and scholarly, that reveals both to the general reader and the specialist the full stature of the man and his work.
