Ernst van de Wetering is one of the world’s foremost specialists on Rembrandt and his work. Following the widely acclaimed Rembrandt: The Painter at Work, which examined the artist’s intriguing painting technique, is this highly original new volume, Rembrandt: The Painter Thinking. In it, van de Wetering investigates Rembrandt’s professional life and his thinking as an artist, including his systematic exploration of each of the ‘foundations of the art of painting’ considered essential during the seventeenth century. Like the previous book, this one allows you to “look over Rembrandt’s shoulder as he painted” (Ernst Gombrich), shedding new light on his work as well as on the theory and practice of painting in the Dutch Golden Age. Get inside Rembrandt’s head with a sampling of images from this lavishly illustrated book below.
