Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn
Dutch Baroque painter Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, also known as the "painter of light and shadows" who lived between 1606 and 1669, is considered one of the greatest visual artists in the history of European art.
While studying at Leiden University, Rembrandt was admired by the painter Jacob van Swannenburg and became his student in 1621. In 1624 he apprenticed briefly to Pieter Lastman in Amsterdam, and in 1625 he established his studio in Leiden, which he shared with his friend and colleague Jan Lievens. Jacob van Swanenburgh specialized in hell and the underworld, and his ability to paint fire and the way light reflects on surrounding objects likely had an impact on Rembrandt's later work.
Rembrandt returned to Leiden in 1625, now a master in his own right, and laid the foundations of his life for the next six years. The influence of Pieter Lastman was most notable during this time, as in a few instances Rembrandt used the jigsaw technique in his old master's compositions, a practice which was later made by Rembrandt's students. Rembrandt's paintings created during this period were often small but rich in detail, with religious and allegorical themes prominent. Rembrandt also worked on his first engravings in Leiden in 1626, and his eventual international fame was based on the widespread dissemination of these works.
Unlike his contemporaries, Rembrandt had the quality of painting achieved by the thought-provoking treatment of light and dark in his engravings. His style soon took an innovative turn, including the use of light. His new style overshadowed the large areas of his paintings; In his interpretation, the lighting quickly weakened as it expanded into the painting, creating bright spots and deep pockets of darkness.
In 1631, Rembrandt began business with Hendrick Uylenburgh, an Amsterdam entrepreneur who, among other activities, had a workshop that created portraits and restored paintings. Rembrandt moved either from Leiden to Amsterdam at this stage. It is not known whether he belonged to any religious community, although Rembrandt preferred biblical depictions, painting large-scale biblical and mythological scenes.
After Rembrandt's work The Night Shift, which he completed in 1942, his overall artistic output drastically declined and he did not paint any painted portraits, although it has been argued that this was an artistic crisis, perhaps due to the fact that his methods had reached their limits, but variations on a few of his paintings between 1642 and 1652 made him "late late". It can also be seen as a sign that he is looking for a new path towards the period that marks the beginning of what has been called the "style".
