I am working on a more elaborate page about Rembrandt paintings.
This is a slide show I prepared for a quick view. I left it deliberately without any text so to just look at them without any distraction.
Rembrandt is known for the use of light and dark in spectacular scenes. He also uses sharp and soft edges to guide the viewer's eye inside his composition.
An excellent website to read more information on Rembrandt's works is here.
O f course, the paintings must be seen in real life but for the time being, the internet can also be a starting point.
Christ in the Storm, 1633. Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston; 160 x 127 cm. We saw this painting already here when we talked about color palettes...
The Night Watch, 1642, Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam363 x 438 cm.
The Anatomy Lesson of Dr Tulp 1632, Mauritshuis, The Hague. 169.5 x 216.5 cm.
Man with a Golden helmet, ca.1650.
I would liek to look at this painting in real life. I keep staring at it.
The colours are awful here in this digital image downloade from the web but the composition and the expression of the man are beautiful! I am trying with a different image with the allposters.com picture, here below...
Ok, I try again with a different version...
