"A Corpus of Remrandt Paintings" is written by some of the world's leading experts and it would be presumptuous of me to comment on this. I just want to make a few remarks from the point of view of a mere art lover.
For a long time I did not buy any of these volumes, thinking they were for specialists only. How wrong I was: much of the text is well worth reading even for a non-specialist and the reproductions of the paintings alone make these books worth having. Their publication took place over such a long period of time that the standards of reproduction improved noticeably as they came out. If you can afford only one of these very expensive volumes take the last one - the coloured reproductions are a treat and the authors have had time to reconsider their opinions.
And now, two ways in which any future editions could be improved. Firstly, the different pictures are assigned different serial numbers and to indicate what a picture has had done to it different fonts are used. Unfortunately this arrangement make looking up references a difficult and slow process. It would help enormously if after each such referral they showed the volume and page number where it is to be found,
Secondly, it would be wonderful if each volume were accompanied by a DVD of all the Rembrandt paintings. Pictures on a computer screen have a luminous quality normally to be found only in the original painting and these wonderful paintings are for enjoyment as much as for study. But then, any future edition may be on screen anyway and books will be obsolete.
