Widely hailed as the greatest painter of the Dutch Golden Age and an unrivaled storyteller, Rembrandt was one of the most innovative and experimental printmakers of the 17th century. His works include intense self portraits, atmospheric landscapes, intimate family portraits, biblical stories and nude studies. Almost drawing-like in appearance, these images were created by combining spontaneous squiggly lines with his remarkable sense for detail.
