Rembrandt van Rijn is commonly taken to be one of the finest Dutch artists that has ever lived. Born in 1606 he rose to prominence just as the Dutch Republic was freeing itself from the shackles of Hapsburg domination. He was instrumental in defining this period of Dutch art, which has subsequently become known as the Dutch Golden Age. But who was Rembrandt van Rijn? And why did he die a pauper? John W. Mollett answers these questions in a thorough examination of Rembrandt’s life and his works.
