Beschreibung

Unread first edition hardback; the examination of a very great painter's reconciliation with mortality. At the time when western Europe was experiencing the first glimpses of life without the governing restrictions of superstitious prejudice, Rembrandt arrived and developed an equally new way to look at the world of painting, portraiture, and the self portrait. Using utterly traditional materials he reinvented and enhanced the glory of bravura brushstrokes, all at the service of a prodigally gifted imaginative mind. The hard won skills are worn almost lightly. The re-examination of myth is filtered through a towering insight into what makes us all human. I know this sounds a bit over the top, but to anyone who braved the crowds at the National Gallery, and had the chance to absorb some of the greatest examples of enlightenment painting in the world, will surely grasp what I am trying to say; for here was a true example of peerless masterpieces. This book is worthy of its subject. A new copy, unread, and with a protected jacket. Magnificent. Language: eng Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng 0.0.

Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

The first book to focus exclusively on the extraordinary paintings, drawings, and prints that Rembrandt produced in the most innovative part of his career

From the mid-1650s until his death at age sixty-three, Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–1669) generated a remarkable body of work as he searched for a new, painterly, and expressive style. His later works demonstrate his mastery, skillfulness, and exceptional ability to render the effects of light, and they have since defined his image as an artist. Rembrandt gleaned inspiration from his direct study of nature, exalting the humble, the mundane, and even the ugly, particularly in his self-portraits and works based on his everyday surroundings. His intimate pictures of figures from history, often portrayed in austere or introspective attitudes, are created with extraordinary sensitivity.
 
This handsome volume includes superb reproductions of some of Rembrandt’s most recognizable paintings, alongside etchings and drawings in various media that demonstrate his mastery of the graphic medium. Through a series of thematic essays, the authors draw on new research to examine Rembrandt’s iconographic, stylistic, and technical innovations and underscore how his work in one medium influenced his work in others. This captivating book is the first to focus exclusively on the paintings, drawings, and prints that Rembrandt produced during the final, most creative phase of his career.
