Item description for Rembrandt: Master of the Portrait (Discoveries) by Pascal Bonafoux & Alexandra Campbell...
Overview Rembrandt, one of the greatest painters of all time, was sensationally successful as a young man but lonely, bankrupt, and virtually ignored by the end of his life--when he painted some of his most powerful works. This book traces his life and career and analyzes his paintings, including his unique handling of light, which would change the course of art forever. 204 illustrations, 169 in full color.
Publishers Description Well-written, loaded with information, and with a rich assortment of illustrations, each Discoveries "RM" volume is a look at one facet of art, archaeology, music, history, philosophy, popular culture, science, or nature. These innovatively designed, affordably priced, compact paperbacks bring ideas to life and amplify our understanding of civilization in a new way.
