Rembrandt Harmenszoon Van Rijn (1606-1669) was the most important painter of the 17th century and was also known as the Dutch golden age. Rembrandt perfectly dominated the drawing and etching and developed entirely new dimensions of printmaking. Rembrandt's trademark was the unique representation of light and shadow, the painting from the dark: his main motives act as a stage in the spotlight, the background disappears in the dark. These strong contrasts in Rembrandt's pictures will receive a special, luminous drama and liveliness.

Rembrandt Harmenszoon Van Rijn was born in Leiden on the 15.7.1606. In 1623 he became a student of Pieter Lastman in Amsterdam, where he relocated in 1631, because firstly he worked in his hometown. Always a main concern of Rembrandt's witness of his over 100 portraits of the self, which show him in changing Panel and various psychological studies was to illustrate the emotions of the represented. So are also the loving and sensual portraits of his wife Saskia and later Hendrickje Stoffels, where he lived since 1649, to understand. The marriage in 1634 made it possible with Saskia of Uylenburgh family, the son of Titus was born in 1641, a financially carefree life and many jobs. But after Saskia's death 1642 came the painter in ever greater need of money and died deeply in debt to the 4.10.1669.

The attribution of many works of Rembrandt's is still difficult because the apprentices of his large workshop adapted his style. The most common image theme is biblical scenes interspersed with historical and mythological motifs. His group portraits were a new conception of the portraits, because as in the self-portrait of Rembrandt peeled out subtle empathy in the individuality of the human appearance. The life-size figure paintings revolutionized the understanding of the Baroque group portrait. While his early work is still characterize by the dramatic design of light and shadow and a careful reproduction of matter lead in his last years warm browns and reds and an internalized expression to a calming of the pictorial action. He added his extensive painting Œuvre virtuosity by numerous etchings and drawings.

Günter Dietz developed a revolutionary method for the authentic reproduction of images, where not the usual printing inks are used, but the same original colors used by the artist. Depending on the artist's painting technique, up to 180 (!) various paint applications need to be applied in order to achieve a perfect replica of the original that also sensationally reflects the "relief" and pastosity of colour composition.

Here are the examples of  'Couple at the Garden Table' by August Macke:

Similarly, the material of the original carrier, such as reproduction on canvas, paper, wood, copper, parchment is always used.

The result is a perfect, gridless reproduction that comes very close to the original in expressiveness and effect. Even museum specialists often can not distinguish the replica from the original. Therefore, a special security notice must be inserted, which is visible only under X-rays.

The circulation of most of the Dietz replicas is limited, usualy to 950 copies. Each canvas replica is stretched onto a frame as the original, so you can retighten the canvas according to variations in room temperature and humidity. High-quality solid wood strips round off the image of every Dietz replica.

Numerous masterpiece paintings of Rembrandt, Caspar David Friedrich, Claude Monet, Gustav Klimt and various others have been recreated by the Dietz Offizin. Famous modern artists such as Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Max Ernst, Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Joan Miró, Marc Chagall used the method developed by Günter Dietz to have replicas of their works produced.

Press commentaries:

“The Dietz System provides images as good as the originals. What the electronics did with the invention of Hi-Fi and stereo for music playback - here the graphic technology made up for visual art.“ (Die Zeit)

“In theory there is no difference between the original and the Dietz replica. They should not be called reproductions, but facsimiles.“ (Newsweek)

“For art printers all over the world remains unrealizable to this day, what managed only Dietz with the help of printing technology: The perfect reproduction of painted works. “ (Der Spiegel)

Epochal term for the art of the 17th century. Baroque art style that emanated from Rome in 1600 permeated fine arts, literature and music practically all over Europe within a very short time and lasted until 1770 in the fine arts. The last phase is generally characterized by the rococo.

Characteristic features include: the pulsating movement of all forms, the abolition of boundaries between architecture, painting and sculpture, that resulted in typical for the era synthesis of the arts, and especially in specific handling of light, which became an important artistic component. The subordination of the part to the whole led to the emergence of a single and, at the same time, dynamic space, which comes into full effect in the magnificent buildings of its time.

The Baroque art, with its tendency towards greatness, magnificence and rushing abundance clearly reflects the desire for representation, which was a concern of secular and ecclesiastical, especially Catholic customers strengthened through Counter-Reformation of that time. In painting, characteristic features of the Baroque, are manifested in the altar and ceiling painting, history and portrait.

The area of the sculpture is typically represented by such artists as Anthony van Dyck, Peter Paul Rubens, Gian Lorenzo Bernini and others.
