Rembrandt as an etcher; a study of the artist at work by Christopher White( Book )

28 editions published between 1969 and 1999 in English and held by 1,434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book surveys Rembrandt's prints both individually and generally. Though an overall pattern in his work can be discovered, Rembrandt was essentially an artist of variety, and each print, at least in his maturity, represented a unique experience." "Rembrandt was one of the first artists to experiment with the media of etching and drypoint, submitting his plates to numerous reworkings, drawing on impressions, varying the inking of his plates and the papers on which he printed. Detailed study reveals that in many cases the changes and variations he introduced provide a unique opportunity, not afforded by the paintings and drawings, of observing the artist at work."--Jacket
Peter Paul Rubens : man & artist by Christopher White( Book )

Rembrandt by Christopher White( Book )

35 editions published between 1964 and 2002 in 5 languages and held by 922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rembrandt is among the few outstanding artists of universal appera. Yet he remains an elusive figure, too often the subject of romantic interpretation. The author firmly bases this study on the known facts, and builds a sensitive, accurate portrait of his life and work. He describes the happiness of Rembrandt's marriage, cut short by his wife's death, and discusses the catastrophe of his bankruptcy. The author suggests the psychological factors that may have awakened his sudden interest in landscapes and delineates the last decade, in which he retreated into the private world of his imagination
Dürer: the artist and his drawings by Christopher White( Book )

25 editions published in 1971 in 3 languages and held by 897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rembrandt by himself by Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn( Book )

24 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669) made hundreds of paintings, etchings and drawings, covering a broad range of subject matter. The proportion of these images that can be classified as self portraits is exceptional. All the surviving examples, many of which have long been among the most celebrated images in Western Art, are described and illustrated here, together with copies after lost pieces. The development of Rembrandt's style from his youth in Leiden to the last years in Amsterdam, and the gradual ageing of his features over the years, are both vividly revealed."--Jacket

Rembrandt : the late works by Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn( Book )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the mid-1650s until his death at age sixty-three, Rembrandt van Rijn (1606--1669) generated a remarkable body of work as he searched for a new, painterly, and expressive style. His later works demonstrate his mastery, skillfulness, and exceptional ability to render the effects of light, and they have since defined his image as an artist. Rembrandt gleaned inspiration from his direct study of nature, exalting the humble, the mundane, and even the ugly, particularly in his self-portraits and works based on his everyday surroundings. His intimate pictures of figures from history, often portrayed in austere or introspective attitudes, are created with extraordinary sensitivity. This handsome volume includes superb reproductions of some of Rembrandt's most recognizable paintings, alongside etchings and drawings in various media that demonstrate his mastery of the graphic medium. Through a series of thematic essays, the authors draw on new research to examine Rembrandt's iconographic, stylistic, and technical innovations and underscore how his work in one medium influenced his work in others. This captivating book is the first to focus exclusively on the paintings, drawings, and prints that Rembrandt produced during the final, most creative phase of his career"--Amazon.com
