Most widely held works by Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn
Rembrandt's eyes by Simon Schama( Book )
9 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 1,999 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Rembrandt's Eyes, about which Simon Schama has been thinking for more than twenty years, shows that the true biography of Rembrandt is to be discovered in his pictures. Through a succession of descriptions and interpretations of Rembrandt's paintings threaded into this narrative, he allows us to see Rembrandt's life clearly and to think about it afresh." "Rembrandt's Eyes shows us why Rembrandt is such a thrilling painter, so revolutionary in his art, so penetrating of the hearts of those who have looked for three hundred years at his pictures. Above all, Schama's understanding of Rembrandt's mind and the dynamic of his life allows him to re-create Rembrandt's life on the page."--Jacket

Rembrandt's Jews by Steven M Nadler( Book )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"There is a popular and romantic myth about Rembrandt and the Jewish people. One of history's greatest artists, we are often told, had a special affinity for Judaism. With so many of Rembrandt's works devoted to stories of the Hebrew Bible, and with his apparent penchant for Jewish themes and the sympathetic portrayal of Jewish faces, it is no wonder that the myth has endured for centuries." "Rembrandt's Jews puts this myth to the test as it examines both the legend and the reality of Rembrandt's relationship to Jews and Judaism. In his elegantly written and engrossing tour of Jewish Amsterdam - which begins in 1633 as workers are repairing Rembrandt's Portuguese-Jewish neighbor's house and completely disrupting the artist's life and livelihood - Steven Nadler tells us the stories of the artist's portraits of Jewish sitters, of his mundane and often contentious dealings with his neighbors in the Jewish quarter of Amsterdam, and of the tolerant setting that city provided for Sephardic and Ashkenazic Jews fleeing persecution in other parts of Europe. As Nadler shows, Rembrandt was only one of a number of prominent seventeenth-century Dutch painters and draftsmen who found inspiration in Jewish subjects. Looking at other artists, such as the landscape painter Jacob van Ruisdael and Emmanuel de Witte, a celebrated painter of architectural interiors, Nadler is able to build a deep and complex account of the remarkable relationship between Dutch and Jewish cultures in the period, evidenced in the dispassionate, even ordinary ways in which Jews and their religion are represented - far from the demonization and grotesque caricatures, the iconography of the outsider, so often found in depictions of Jews during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance."--Jacket

The roles played by Rembrandt's preparatory oil sketches and drawings are also now better understood, and these new insights are presented to a wider public for the first time in this lavishly illustrated volume."--Jacket
Rembrandt as an etcher; a study of the artist at work by Christopher White( Book )
6 editions published between 1969 and 1999 in English and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book surveys Rembrandt's prints both individually and generally. Though an overall pattern in his work can be discovered, Rembrandt was essentially an artist of variety, and each print, at least in his maturity, represented a unique experience." "Rembrandt was one of the first artists to experiment with the media of etching and drypoint, submitting his plates to numerous reworkings, drawing on impressions, varying the inking of his plates and the papers on which he printed. Detailed study reveals that in many cases the changes and variations he introduced provide a unique opportunity, not afforded by the paintings and drawings, of observing the artist at work."--Jacket

Rembrandt's nose : of flesh & spirit in the master's portraits by Michael R Taylor( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For nearly four hundred years, art patrons, art historians, and art lovers have studied the work of the seventeenth-century Dutch master Rembrandt van Rijn and wondered at the dramatic, almost impossible vitality of his portraits. What is it that makes them so startlingly, vividly alive across each new generation? How was it that the artist managed to paint his sitters - including himself - so that they would always appear to be breathing the very same air as ourselves? How was the flawed, brilliant, mysterious man able to convey even the most imperceptible gestures - from the slightest quiver of the lips to a momentary tremor of the nostrils - with nothing more than ground pigment, ink, or humble etching tools?" "In Rembrandt's Nose, the respected American-born, Paris based author and translator Michael Taylor endeavors to answer these enduring questions - and comes up with an astonishingly original conclusion. Chronicling Rembrandt's life and artistic evolution from his arrival in Amsterdam as a brash young artist, through his years of fame and extravagance, to the penury and grief of his final years in bankruptcy, Taylor takes us into Rembrandt's studio and right up to his easel, so that we feel we can almost touch the rich mounds of paint upon his palette and smell the fat tang of linseed oil over the pitchy salt air that drifts in through the open window. He describes precisely how our eyes take in the paintings so that we begin to see more in each image, right up to the last defining highlight on the tip of a nose. With careful, elegant, and inquisitive prose, Taylor probes the mysteries of Rembrandt's legacy and offers u an immensely pleasurable read that is as light and witty as it is illuminating."--BOOK JACKET
