This biography examines the life of the Dutch artist Rembrandt. The author conjures the world in which Rembrandt moved - its sounds, smells and tastes as well as its politics - and the influences on him including the wars of… the Protestant United Provinces against Spain, and the demands of patrons and the ambitions of contemporaries. Above all the profound effect on Rembrandt of the leading master of the immediately preceding generation, Rubens, with whom Rembrandt was obsessed for the first part of his life. 1999.
