Description: Rembrandt’s Journey: Painter · Draftsman · Etcher
This catalogue surveys the unfolding of Rembrandt van Rijn's art from his early years in Leiden to his later Amsterdam years, using as an organizing framework the artist's extraordinarily diverse and profoundly expressive work in printmaking. The works, which further include paintings and drawings, are grouped by theme, rather than by medium or strict chronology, so as to better illuminate the evolution of Rembrandt's art with regard to style and content. This structure also provides the opportunity to explore certain themes that Rembrandt repeatedly returned to over time, always with a new perspective.

The book also includes a chronology of Rembrandt's life and a useful section on materials and techniques used in seventeenth-century printmaking and painting.
