The significant incidents of Rembrandt's life, which are reflected in his art, are illustrated by his own hand in this perceptive biography.
Imaginatively described are his powers to make portraits come vibrantly alive, his interest in the everyday details of life around him, his love of the landscapes of his country, and his dramatic telling of Bible stories. Here is Rembrandt's compelling life story told through his own art.
All paintings are in full color, with a few extras new to this edition. Plus there is a bonus page in the back, but only US orders, when you get the book here from Purple House Press—page 68 showcases Rembrandt's beautiful painting Christ on the Storm on the Sea of Galilee. This edition of the book was printed on an offset printing press using 100# matte art paper (semigloss) with 12 pt covers.
A set of eight 8x10 prints comes with the book, US only, printed on thick 18 pt cardstock and with the same matte lamination as the book cover. Works of art included are Saskia van Uylenburgh in Profile, Return of the Prodigal Son, The Holy Family with Angels, The Artist's Son, Reading, The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp, Landscape with a Stone Bridge, The Night Watch, and The Polish Rider.
Books purchased from any other retailer are the print-on-demand edition, with a different isbn and printed on 70# paper with 10 pt covers. Page 68 is blank, it does not feature Christ on the Storm on the Sea of Galilee as an extra painting. And there are no prints.
