Rembrandt's Light brings together paintings, etchings and drawings that focus on Rembrandt's mastery of visual storytelling through light, concentrating on the period from 1639 - 1658, when he lived in his 'dream house' on the Breestraat in the heart of Amsterdam (today the Rembrandt House Museum). The rooms on the first floor of the house, with their large windows and exceptional quality of light, offered new possibilities for the creation of art.
Arranged thematically the book traces Rembrandt's innovation: from evoking a meditative mood, to lighting figures, to creating impact and drama. Published to coincide with an exhibition at Dulwich Picture Gallery, and the celebrations taking place throughout Europe to mark 350 years since his death, Rembrandt's Light aims to refresh the way we look at works by this incomparable Dutch Master.
