has ten paintings by Rembrandt.The most famous is undoubtedly The Anatomy Lesson of Dr Nicolaes Tulp
, but just as popular are Simeon's Song of Praise
, Portrait of an Old Man
, one of the last which the Master painted. In this playfully designed book the paintings and their distinctive features are conveyed in an accessible manner. A large number of detailed images capture Rembrandt's extraordinary painting technique from close by: the quick brushstrokes, the crisscrossing in wet paint and the carefully placed dabs and jabs.The recent restoration of three Rembrandts at the Mauritshuis also receives special attention.
