Product description


An old woman, thought to be Rembrandt's mother, is frequently portrayed in his works. Whether Rembrandt really did depict his mother, or whether this is a myth which has persisted for centuries is still not clear. This book discusses the creation of this myth, which has been an essential part of Rembrandt.
