The god of painting 11 Aug. 2010
By Reich Claude - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is the catalogue for a marvelous exhibition held at the National Gallery in Washington and the Getty in Los Angeles in 2005. It concentrates on the figures of apostles the artist painted in the late 1650's and early 1660's, complemented with two portraits of the Virgin. There are some fantastic discoveries, such as the little-known 1661 Virgin of Sorrows (in the collection of a small French museum in the city of Epinal)or the haunting Saint Bavo (Göteborgs Konstmuseum). Each painting is thoroughly analysed and the introductory essays written by experts in the field (National Gallery curator Arthur Wheelock especially)show how important religion was to the artist's life and art.

A valuable addition to the literature on Rembrandt with many high-quality illustrations and, rare enough to be noted, numerous magnified details which enable the reader to distinguish the artist's thick layers of paint.

This ordered as replacement for treasured volume lost in a move. When the book arrived gift-wrapped and in pristine condition, I immediately looked thru all pages discovering that I admired it more than ever before. I immediately placed it in a prominent place on a shelf devoted to favorite artists. Painter of the soul Rembrandt creates a consummate portrait of Jesus here that for me elevates this volume to a sacred category. So immortal Rembrandt continues to illuminate our lives and souls.

found my picture in it 12 July 2013
By Diane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
the painting of the prodigal's return was in this book as I had hoped. It is very interesting to read about the painting with its meanings as well as the other paintings which will take me some time to finish
