The Rijksmuseum is home to the world’s largest collection of paintings by Rembrandt (1606–69), including the legendary works The Night Watch, The Jewish Bride, The Syndics and the great portraits of the couple Marten Soolmans and Oopjen Coppit. The museum also boasts a vast collection of Rembrandt’s drawings and etchings. In this volume, for the first time, all 22 paintings and 60 drawings―as well as 300 of the most beautiful etchings in the collection―are presented together. Designed by Irma Boom, Rembrandt × Rijksmuseum is both compactly sized and―at more than 800 pages―vast in scope, offering a thrilling and attractive new experience of the artist in book form.
Rembrandt × Rijksmuseum is published on the occasion of the Rijksmuseum exhibition All the Rembrandts, in what has been officially designated as the Year of Rembrandt 2019. The paintings, drawings and etchings gathered here offer an unparalleled perspective on Rembrandt the artist, the human being and the storyteller.
