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.
