Summary
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 1639-58, when he lived in his 'dream house' on the Breestraat in the heart of Amsterdam (today the Museum Het Rembrandthuis). 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 works.00Arranged thematically the book traces Rembrandt's innovation: from evoking a meditative mood, to lighting people, to creating impact and drama. Highlights include 'The Denial of St Peter', 'Pilgrims at Emmaus' and three of the artist's most famous images of women: 'A Woman Bathing in a Stream', 'A Woman in Bed' and 'Girl at a Window'
