This is a lively, colour-illustrated biography of this celebrated 17th-century artist. "The History Makers" is a new, colour-illustrated series which focuses on the lives and legacies of historical figures who have influenced the world in significant and lasting ways, including politics, social action and the arts and sciences. Rembrandt (1606-1669) is generally considered one of the greatest painters and print makers in European art history. His greatest creative triumphs are generally agreed to have been in portraits (of himself and others) and in portraying scenes from the Bible. Watts examines how Rembrandt's faith impacted on his work and traces the life of this fascinating character and the key changes in his art style during his life.
