Item description for Rembrandt's Mother (Art) by Gerbrand Korevaar...

*An intriguing look at an important model of Rembrandt van Rijn

About half of the work Rembrandt did in Leiden, the Netherlands, consisted of paintings, etchings and drawings showing older people. In these works an old woman is frequently portrayed who has traditionally been thought to be Rembrandt's mother, Neeltje. Whether Rembrandt really depicted her or whether this is a myth which has persisted for centuries is still not clear. This book discusses the creation of this myth which, although not firmly based on facts, has been an essential part of Rembrandts image for centuries.

The works for which Rembrandt's mother was the model and which are reproduced in this book give an idea of the young artists iconographic interests. For instance, Rembrandt depicted her as a prophetess, attentively reading a book. Sometimes she plays an active role in religious or allegorical pictures. A similar model can also be recognized in paintings by Rembrandt's friend Jan Lievens and his first pupil Gerrit Dou.

By showing the paintings of these young masters, the book examines their artistic relationships. It also offers a unique opportunity to compare early, closely related works and to gain a clearer picture of the collaboration among these artists.
