Young Rembrandt.
Powerpoint. We see the emerging artist, initially in Leiden and from 1632 Amsterdam. We discuss his youthful period, and early works under the influence of Lastman and then a 180 degree turnaround when the Caravaggio influence takes over – in his self portrait c 1628, and Jeremiah, 1630 up to the Night Watch 1642. His regular family life breaks down in 1642 when his wife Saskia dies. Full live commentary by the top-level guide Drs Kees Kaldenbach, art historian living in Amsterdam with 20 years of teaching experience.

 

Late Period Rembrandt.

Powerpoint.  Paintings from 1942, when he went into a deep depression after Saskia’s death. Re-emerging as a sadder and wiser man, with deep empathy. Rembrandt succeeds in expressing the soul and the inner life of his characters. In this he reaches the level of Titian in terms of emotions and use of rough paint layers.  Full live commentary by the top-level guide Drs Kees Kaldenbach, art historian living in Amsterdam with 20 years of teaching experience.

 

Rembrandt Master of Etching.
Powerpoint. Rembrandt experimented with etchings, starting from 1630s, peaking in the 1640s. Contrasting with the former tradition of woodblock prints he is able in etching to show the full range in grey-scale of super white to middle gray tone to super black areas in the print. He is actually considered the best etcher in the world by many specialists in that field. He also conveys the inner life of his subjects, so we can feel empathy. In this talk, we will discuss his most celebrated etchings. In great magnification, we also see the tricks of his superior technique and the beauty of execution in the etchings. Full live commentary by the top-level guide Drs Kees Kaldenbach, art historian living in Amsterdam with 20 years of teaching experience.
