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.
