The Painter at Work
Rembrandt, The Painter at Work is a book that demonstrates profound empathy with the artistic endeavours of a great artist. But it is not only a book about Rembrandt, it is also a synthesis of Van de Wetering's experience and is unique in its combination of depth and breadth of insight into the genesis of works of art. It provides an exemplary frame for an approach to the study of any painter, as well as being an eye-opener for contemporary painters with an interest in the technical traditions of their art. The book is used by a growing number of universities all over the world. On the one hand, it gives students of art history as well as those in the field of conservation access both to historical studio practice in general and to the interrelationships between craft and creativity. On the other hand, it provides a most valuable insight into the possibilities of scholarly as well as scientific methods to gain a deeper understanding of the art of painting.
