“Rembrandt was, above all, a painter and etcher of scenes from the Old and New Testaments and it is in the description of his interpretations of these texts that Dr Tümpel is unrivalled among modern writers on the artist. . . . The product of long and mature reflection on the art of Rembrandt and, in particular, on his religious art.”—The Art Newspaper

This large art monograph of Rembrandt is written by Christian Tümpel, a renowned expert on the subject, who was a Fellow at the Warburg Institute in London (1968-1969) and was subsequently invited to succeed Julius Held as chair of Northern European Art at Columbia University in New York the following year.

About the Author:

Christian Tümpel (2002-2009) was a Professor of the History of Art in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. He devoted his life to researching Rembrandt, starting in 1968 with his doctoral dissertation about Rembrandt's historical paintings, which earned him a fellowship at the Warburg Institute in London the following year. In 1971 he was awarded the Prize of the Dutch Royal Academy of Science for his studies of Rembrandt, an honour the academy bestows only every twenty years. He was a prodigious contributor to the catalogues of international exhibitions, most notably to the anniversary exhibition 'Rembrandt' at the Rembrandt House in Amsterdam. He presented papers at conferences in Washington, Sacramento, Detroit, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Berlin and Hamburg and was involved in the curatorial preparation of major exhibitions of Dutch art and 19th century sculpture in Amsterdam, Haarlem, Nijmegen, Jerusalem, Münster and Berlin. His essays and books on Dutch art and on Rembrandt have been translated into many languages.

Book Description Haus Publishing, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Rembrandt used the achievements of his teachers, predecessors and contemporaries to develop and realise his own artistic aims and abilities, and it was to these too that he owed his basic artistic impulses. His urge to achieve unmistakable originality led him to overturn aesthetic and thematic conventions; he expanded technique and experimented with the use of colour and forms of etching. Although the art of the past always served him as a starting point, he sought to surpass it by staging works that were both unexpectedly daring and apposite to their subject.
