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.

Volume I contains 264 text pages, set in Caslon Old Face type. Volume II contains 281 rich gravure reproductions of Rembrandt’s paintings, etchings, and drawings, arranged in unorthodox and stimulating order.
