Noctiluca | Rembrandt

Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (1606-1669) is one of the greatest painters in Europe in the 17th century and the greatest painter in Dutch history.

Rembrandt was teached by P. Rasteman in his early years and opened his studio in his hometown in 1625. Painting has a wide range of genres, and is good at portrait painting, landscape painting, custom painting, religious painting, historical painting and other fields.

Rembrandt left more than 600 oil paintings, more than 300 etchings and more than 2000 sketches in his life. Almost 100 self-portraits were painted, and almost all his family members appeared in his paintings.

Rembrandt's position in the history of painting, not only in the Netherlands but also in the history of painting in Europe, is comparable to that of the Italian Renaissance masters. He represents the national character and genius of Nordic. Rembrandt's great purpose is a special technique to express his special soul. The term "light and shade" has a special meaning when used to refer to the painter. In other words, Rembrandt's light and shade are quite different from those of Renaissance Italian writers. Fromentin, a 19th-century French painter and critic, called him a "Noctiluca". Others say that he paints light with darkness.
