Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Although the extensive literature on Rembrandt could fill a small library, there has been no up-to-date survey of his extraordinary achievement as a draftsman. Renowned Rembrandt scholar Seymour Slive fills this void with his scrutiny of some 150 drawings culled from a corpus of about eight hundred by the master. The drawings, reproduced in color, are accompanied by etchings and paintings by Rembrandt and others, including Leonardo and Raphael. Unlike other publications of Rembrandt's drawings, they are here arranged thematically, which makes his genius crystal clear. Individual chapters focus on self-portraits, portraits of family members and friends, the lives of women and children, nudes, copies, model and study sheets, animals, landscapes and buildings, religious and mythological subjects, historical subjects, and genre scenes. Slive further discusses possible doubtful attributions, which account for the considerable reduction from earlier times in the number of drawings now ascribed to the master.

Book News Annotation:

A noted Rembrandt expert, Slive (Fine Arts [emeritus], Harvard University) presents an up-to-date survey of the artist's extraordinary achievements as a draftsman. Examining 150 drawings (all reproduced in color), the author shows how Rembrandt's drawings often were "working drafts" for etchings and paintings. Thematic chapters focus on self-portraits, portraits of family members and friends, the lives of women and children, nudes, copies, model and study sheets, animals, landscapes and buildings, religious and mythological subjects, historical subjects, and genre scenes. The book also includes Rembrandt's sketches of works by predecessors such as Leonardo, Titian, and Raphael, as wells as some doubtful attributions. A beautifully produced volume, this book will appeal to readers interested in Rembrandt or in Dutch art in general. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
