9780714869193: Rembrandt (Phaidon Classics)

Phaidon’s classic illustrated monograph on Rembrandt, updated with an elegantly crafted design for today’s burgeoning art aficionados.

Reviving a much beloved group of artist monographs from the Phaidon archive, the new Phaidon Classics bring to life the fine craftsmanship and design of Phaidon books of the 1930s, 40s and 50s. Updated with a contemporary "classic" design, full color images and new introductions by leading specialists on the work of each artist, these elegantly crafted volumes revive the fine bookmaking of the first half of the twentieth century, making Phaidon Classics instant collectors’ items.

Rembrandt (1606–1669) was arguably the finest painter of the northern Baroque period, and his intimate self‐portraits and vast historical canvases such as The Nightwatch open up the world of the seventeenth‐century Netherlands. The luxurious large‐format book highlights Rembrandt’s unique lighting techniques and rich palette.

About the Author:

Tancred Borenius (1885‐1948) was a Finnish art historian, diplomat and the first Professor of Art History at University College London.

Walter Liedtke is Curator of European Paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and a specialist in Dutch and Flemish paintings.

Review:

"It wasn't until we saw these books in person that we were able to appreciate how sumptuous, smartly designed, and just plain sexy they are. Best of all are the illustrations. Each volume has 125 crisp and meticulous reproductions – the Van Gogh colors are ripe to the point of bursting." —Elle Decor

"We forget, in our image-laden era, just how recent a phenomenon art books are, with their true-colour reproductions of both old and contemporary works of art. We also forget just how essential they are, not just for the pleasure of the general public, but as a source of inspiration for artists and to encourage new generations of collectors and art historians. One key factor in this progress was the founding of Phaidon Press in 1923... Last year Phaidon embarked on a major project to produce a new series of 'Phaidon Classics'... A major decision has been to update the selection of images and the catalogue notes, but to retain the original essays, adding instead a preface by a contemporary scholar. What you get, therefore, besides a beautiful book, is a fascinating dialogue between quite different styles of address to the art-loving audience. This is an astute move." —Apollo-magazine.com
