REMBRANDT
VAN RIJN
LIFE OF A DUTCH MASTER

Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (born July 15, 1606 in Leiden, † October 4, 1669) is considered one of the most important and well-known Dutch Baroque artists. His work fell into the era of the Golden Age, when the Netherlands experienced a political, economic and artistic heyday. Rembrandt studied with Pieter Lastman, opened his first studio in Leiden in 1625 and soon attracted attention. In 1631 he moved to Amsterdam, where he developed into a celebrated artist.

WORLD'S FAMOUS WORK

THE NIGHT

WATCH

Many of Rembrandt's works are characterized by strong light-dark contrasts, which is why he is considered a Master of Chiaroscuro.

  • Woman, probably a Beresteyn member

    Great icons of art, such as Dürer’s Young Hare, Fra Angelico’s angels or Bruegel’s intimidating creatures, stunningly refurbished.

  • Man, probably a Beresteyn member

    Rembrandts portrait of most likely Cornelis van Beresteyn a wealthy burgomaster of Delft, with its restrained pose and sober expression, cites a tradition of Spanish royal portraits of the mid-1500s.

  • In the portrait of the preacher Johannes Wtenbogaert at the age of 76, Rembrandt focuses on the wrinkled face, eyes and white collar. The black clothing and background are barely worked out. 

  • Portrait of
    Ariaentje Hollaer

    Adriaantje Hollaer was born in Rotterdam as the daughter of a merchant and  married to Hendrik Martenszoon Sorgh. Her portrait from 1642 was featured on the Dutch banknote for 100 guilders.

  • Portrait of Philips Lucasz

    Philips Lucasz. of Middelburg was Councillor of the Dutch East Indies and commander of a trade fleet. He and his wife were painted by Rembrandt in 1635 during a stay in Amsterdam.
