Rembrandt, one of the greatest of the Old Masters, is a towering figure in the history of art. Technically brilliant, especially in their mastery of light and shade, Rembrandts paintings are notable for their depth of feeling and human insight. With helpful and informative captions this volume makes his great paintings instantly accessible. 50 of his best-known works are shown here, including several of his famous, revealing and unflattering Self-portraits, The Night Watch, which displays his mastery of chiaroscuro, and several of his Biblical themes, including the moving The Descent from the Cross, and the incredibly sumptuous and theatrical Belshazzafs Feast.
