Rembrandt van Rijn (Dutch painter, draftsman, and printmaker, 1606-1669)

Note: Noted as one of the most popular and influential artists of his period. His work is characterized by the Baroque interest in dramatic scenes and strong contrasts of light on a dark stage. The subjects of his works include portraits, landscapes, figures, animals, and scenes of biblical and secular history and mythology. He was very prolific, producing paintings, etchings, and drawings: Rembrandt executed about 400 paintings, over 1000 drawings, and around 300 etchings.
