Artist Bio

Rembrandt van Rijn was a prominent Dutch artist born in 1606 in Leiden, Netherlands. From about 1620 to 1625 Rembrandt trained first under Jacob van Swanenburgh, and then under Peter Lastman. He is best known for his paintings, drawings and prints that famously display the style of realism down to the finest examples of contour, light and shade. He favored the topics of religion, history, mythology and allegorical displays of life in his compositions. Works by Rembrandt van Rijn can be found in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Art, Rijksmuseum, the Musée du Louvre and several other collections internationally.
