Rembrandt was born on 15 July 1606 and was an innovative and prolific draftsman, painter and printmaker.  He is generally considered to be the most important artist of the Dutch Golden Age. His work depicts a wide range of style and subject matter, from portraits, self-portraits, landscapes, genre scenes, allegorical and historical scenes, biblical and mythological themes, and animal studies. 

 

Although he achieved acclaim in his youth, the latter part of his life was marked with tragedy and financial hardship as was the case of so many Dutch masters whom he taught. Rembrandt’s greatest triumphs are considered portraits of his contemporaries, self-portraits and Biblical illustrations. He is known as having transformed printmaking and is considered the greatest etcher in the history of the medium.
