Summary:
"One of the most fascinating aspects of Rembrandt's extraordinary artistic career is his suite of brooding, pensive half-length images of religious figures from the late 1650s and early 1660s. The men and women in these portraits peer out of the dark recesses of dimly lit interiors as though burdened by the weight of their spiritual and emotional concerns."

Abstract:

"One of the most fascinating aspects of Rembrandt's extraordinary artistic career is his suite of brooding, pensive half-length images of religious figures from the late 1650s and early 1660s. The men and women in these portraits peer out of the dark recesses of dimly lit interiors as though burdened by the weight of their spiritual and emotional concerns." "This illustrated catalogue, which accompanies an exhibition organized by the National Gallery of Art, brings together seventeen of these majestic paintings. Many have been identified as images of apostles and evangelists, but among them are also representations of Christ and the Virgin, as well as saints and monks. The juxtaposition of these paintings in Rembrandt's Late Religious Portraits raises questions about their relationships to each other and, in a broader sense, to Rembrandt's life and career."--BOOK JACKET.
