5.0 out of 5 stars The book to read about rembrandt!, 26 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Rembrandt's Eyes (Hardcover)
If there is one book about Rembrandt, which not only gives the historical background to Rembrandt's life, mainly based on the excellent research by Gary Schwartz, but is also able to stimulate us to look more carefully and sympathetically at the paintings themselves and Rembrandt's personal life, a book which is written in a style which is enjoyable and stimulating, typical of Simon Schama, then this is the BOOK ABOUT REMBRANDT.
As a bonus, which at first you might think as I initially did is not relevant, is a large section about Rubens. However, when one gets acquainted with Rubens, it becomes clear that Rubens was a man of his and for his time, but Rembrandt's work has significance and meaning not only for his time, but for centuries to come. Through Rembrandt's work and also this book we learn to be engaged with art in a deeper and more personal way. Adriaan Luijk
