Rembrandt's Whore: A Novel

Matton, Sylvie Author

9781841953229: Rembrandt's Whore: A Novel

Immortalized in many of his greatest works of portraiture, Hendrickje Stoffels was Rembrandt's common law wife—and it is through her eyes, in this beautifully realized and well-researched novel, that we are plunged into the midst of both a passionate affair and a turbulent era of Dutch history. With writing as careful and subtle as the master's paintings, Rembrandt's Whore combines all the qualities of a naturalist tragedy, historical novel, and exposition of 17th-century Dutch society. To listen to Hendrickje is to share Rembrandt's life.

Book Description Canongate Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 193 x 127 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. This internationally acclaimed novel is the fictional monologue of Hendrickje Stoffels, Rembrandt s last mistress. It combines all the qualities of a naturalist tragedy, historical novel and exposition of seventeenth-century Dutch society. Matton has researched not only Rembrandt s life and works, but also contemporary Amsterdam and the Black Death to provide an intriguing, intimate and privileged view into the painter s life. Above all, this is Hendrickje s story. A sensitive innocent, she escapes the harsh realities of her garrison home-town to become a servant in Rembrandt s household. She soon becomes his lover and closest confidante, filling the void in his life resulting from the death of his wife and two of their children. Reborn at twenty in Rembrandt s studio, enlightened by the positive values of beauty, truth, love and art, Hendrickje is fated to discover the hypocrisy and fickleness of Amsterdam society, which ostracises her and precipitates Rembrandt s final collapse. In a serene, sensuous style of writing, Matton paints a powerful fictional portrait of this impassioned relationship in the fascinating context of a turbulent era of Dutch history.
