|We are enjoying our study of Baroque artists. We began with Rembrandt, known for his chiaroscuro and tenebrism (lights and darks), emotion, fancy costumes, and self-portraits.|
|Rembrandt Self Portrait|
Rembrandt produced as many as 90 self-portraits in his lifetime, more than any other known artist.
|Rembrandt Self Portrait Wide Eyed 1630|
|Old Man in Military Costume 1630-31|
We like this one because this one because we were able to view it at
the Getty Museum in Los Angeles a few years ago.
Here is Lorenzo and Old Man in Military Costume:
This one is quite gruesome:
|The Anatomy Lecture of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp 1655-57|
I really love the emotion in this painting:
|Belshazzar's Feast 1635|
One of Rembrandt's most famous, The Night Watch, which is not a night watch at all.
|The Night Watch 1642|
