Harmensz van Rijn Rembrandt

1606-1669

Rembrandt is widely regarded as one of the finest visual artists of all time and his broad range of styles and subject matters mean he is considered to be the most important artist in Dutch art history. His works portray many themes such as allegorical and history scenes, portraits and self-portraits, biblical and mythological matter, and animal studies and his ability to represent such different visual themes set him apart from many other Dutch artists from the 17th century.
