Rembrandt is an artist who touches people. His pictures testify to deep psychological insight, and his technique is dazzling. This book is about the Rembrandts in the Mauritshuis, the most famous of which is undoubtedly The anatomy lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp. Also very popular, however, are the Portrait of and old man and what is perhaps Rembrandt's very last Self-portrait, painted in 1669, the year of his death. This volume sheds light not only on Rembrandt's masterpieces but also on his eventful life: his obsession with work, his compulsive collecting, his undeniable success and his artistic crises. This, in short, is an overview of Rembrandt, based on one of the most splendid collections of Rembrandts in the world.
