Rembrandt (ARTiculate: Films)

“The event of a lifetime” – THE TIMES.
Aside from Van Gogh, Rembrandt is also widely seen as one of the greatest Dutch painters of all time. Acclaimed as the magician of light and shadows, Rembrandt transformed plain scenes into lively and theatrical moments with dramatic chiaroscuro lighting, sophisticated colour layering and dynamic compositions. Rembrandt rose to fame with “The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp”, while “The Night Watch” is generally considered the height of his painterly achievement. However, his artistic career was also severely damaged by this painting. His life was full of ups and downs, with periods of prosperity followed by poverty and misfortune towards the end of his life, and he was buried in an unknown grave upon his death. Rembrandt did not leave behind any diaries or autobiographies and we can fully understand him through his extant works, particularly the ninety self-portrait sketches, drawings and paintings which he produced in nearly forty years’ time, serving as windows to the great master’s soul. From the National Gallery in London to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, a wide array of Rembrandt’s timeless masterpieces are to be examined, bearing witness to his perspectives of human nature.
