Rembrandt, or really Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn was born July 15, 1606 in Leiden. He was a Dutch painter, draftsman and printmaker. He worked with his works in Amsterdam. Rembrandt is considered chiaroscuro painting masters.
Rembrandt got his basic training at historical painter Jacob van Swanenburgh in Leiden and then with Pieter Lastman in Amsterdam. Around the year 1625 Rembrandt became established as an independent champion along with his friend and colleague Jan Lievens. Rembrandt began his career with small paintings with biblical themes, which can be marked influences from Rubens Baroque paintings and chiaroscuro-painting of Caravaggio's Dutch followers.
Rembrandt made his fame through Group portrait Doctor Tulp Anatomy Lesson (1632). The painting is characterized by a crass naturalism; Dr. Nicolaes Tulp is about to face their curious audience to demonstrate how the muscle works as he has just uncovered at autopsy of the body in front of him.
Rembrandt was the first to establish that the actual color to application, the light and color can mean as much as the subject. This approach made it possible for him to break with the composition laws and creating new ones, based on his great sensitivity.
Rembrandt painted over one hundred self-portraits, and in one of the first, from 1629, he mastered completely light as a means of expression. In 1642 he performed his most famous work, The Night Watch (eg. Captain Banning Cocqs skyttegille); husband was long believed that it concerned a nighttime scene due omfernissning and long accumulated dirt. First, in 1947, painting a proper cleaning. The painting is stunning in its brilliant coloring and extreme chiaroscuro. The Dutch marksman egil lena had during 1600's first half of the shift to be drinks and dinner parties for men. The painter Frans Hals portrayed shooter egil lena in Haarlem when they were banged around a banquet table. Rembrandt has instead chosen to portray the guild members as they leave his headquarters to participate in a formal parade.
Rembrandt had a virtuoso talent as a portrait painter but must above all have regarded himself as a religious painter. He performed in his last years a series of paintings with biblical themes, such as the warm, heartfelt The Prodigal Son (1669).
