Summary:Examines the life and art of Rembrandt against the historical, political, and religious background of the period.

Rembrandt van Rihn defines an entire era of remarkable painting both for his innovation in interpretation and his adventurous technique. His many portraits, self-portraits, landscapes, and historical pieces demonstrate his singular talent as a painter and engraver, and reveal much about the man himself. This book looks at Rembrandt's life and art during a great period of culture and enlightenment that produced fellow artists Hals and Vermeer, and the philosopher Spinoza. Rembrandt lived during a "Golden Age" in seventeenth-century Holland. Travel back in time and discover the fascinating history of the period and the masterworks that have awed generations.
