Summary

A masterful portrait of one of the most celebrated painters of all time

This dazzling, unconventional biography shows us why, more than three centuries after his death, Rembrandt continues to exert such a hold on our imagination. Interweaving the few known facts of the Dutch master’s life with fully illustrated explorations of his work and his age, renowned scholar Simon Schama reveals Rembrandt’s genius anew. Rembrandt’s Eyes is a commanding synthesis of scholarship and storytelling that contributes a wholly new understanding of the artist and his place in history.
