Rembrandt's Nose


Throughout 2006, all the world will celebrate the four-hundredth anniversary of the birth of one of the greatest portrait painters that ever lived, the Dutch seventeenth-century master Rembrandt. (The exhibition Strokes of Genius: RembrandtÂ’s Prints and Drawings alone, which opens in November at The National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., is one of the most highly anticipated of the decade and is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of visitors.) Although Rembrandt is among the most important artists in Western history, and perhaps our greatest draftsman, no one has ever, until now, been able to pinpoint exactly how it was that he so precisely and effortlessly captured the spiritual essence of his subjects.~This thrilling, insightful, sophisticated and yet accessible illustrated reading-format study, written by the preeminent scholar and translator Michael Taylor, will be as enlightening and delightful to Rembrandt scholars as to lay readers. Taylor looks at RembrandtÂ’s self-portraits, his society portraits, historical paintings and biblical scenes, and identifies how it was that the artist rendered his subjects so alive, so full of earthy, flesh-and-blood vitality--which all boils down to his treatment of the nose.~RembrandtÂ’s Nose is a gem of a book, an intimate, candid and extremely entertaining engagement with the works of art themselves, interwoven with racy historical snippets that contextualize the artistÂ’s breakthroughs and techniques. It includes some 50 reproductions and details, as well as a complete chronology of RembrandtÂ’s life.
