Harmenszoon van Rijn Rembrandt - 1606-1669 Dutch Baroque Painter, Draughtsman and Printmaker
Unlike most Dutch masters of the 17th century, Rembrandt’s works depict a wide range of style and subject matter such as portraits of others and self-portraits, landscapes, genre scenes, allegorical and historical works, biblical and mythological scenes as well as animal studies. Also, Rembrandt is regarded as one of the greatest etchers ever.
