Rembrandt was a painter and draftsman of undisputed genius, but what was he like as a person? The mystery of the moody and inspired Rembrandt continues to fascinate. Gary Schwartz tells the story of Rembrandt the man, artist, and legend in lively and accessible language. He introduces us to the people who inspired the artist: patrons, wives, and lovers, and his son Titus, who died tragically young. And Schwartz recounts the sorrowful and impoverished circumstances of the artist’s last years. Rembrandt’s fascinating art remains, enriching the biographical details of his life through its subject matter and its development from the polished sophistication of his early years in Amsterdam to the deep soul-searching of the late works.

This attractive and accessible book is the ideal introduction for students and all art lovers.

Gary Schwartz is an independent art historian who has published many authoritative works on Rembrandt. He was awarded the 2009 Prince Bernhard Culture Fund Prize.
