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 800 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.

Review:

“You would have to go a long way to find a better guide than Mr. Slive—to understanding Rembrandt and his art.”—The Wall Street Journal



“A connoisseur’s volume but also an eloquent introduction to Rembrandt’s genius as draughtsman. . . . here is virtuosity and humanity together, on every page.”—Financial Times



  “This book will long provide the touchstone and primer on Rembrandt drawings for scholars and amateurs alike.”—The Art Book



 “This beautifully written and produced book is the perfect introduction to Rembrandt’s drawings for general readers and students alike. . . . Highly recommended.”--Choice
