Rembrandt and His Time: Masterworks from the Albertina, Vienna
Hudson Hills, 2005 - Art - 254 pages
In conjunction with the 400th anniversary of Rembrandt's birth in 2006, the Milwaukee Art Museum presents an exhibition of many of the greatest drawings and prints ever produced by Netherlandish artists. The exhibition and this accompanying publication include 112 masterworks on paper from the Albertina in Vienna - one of the finest graphic arts collections in the world. The book, which features twenty-seven important works by one of the greatest masters of all time, explores the pivotal and influential role of Rembrandt as a draftsman in mid-seventeenth-century Holland. His iconic images demonstrate his exceptional facility in different media and with a variety of subject matter - landscape, religious themes, and studies of everyday life.
Equally significant are a number of drawings by Roelant Savery, David Vinckboons, Jacques de Gheyn II, Hendrick Avercamp, Jan van Goyen, and Esaias van de Velde that provide the earliest examples of an emerging naturalism. There are also works by Rembrandt's contemporaries, followers, and by later artists whose innovative approach to recording the Dutch world takes the work of Rembrandt a step further. These artists include Jan Lievens, Lambert Doomer, Philips Koninck, Nicolaes Maes, Salomon de Bray, Govaert Flinck, and Adriaen van Ostade. Marine themes and Italianate landscapes are also explored as a means of fully explaining Rembrandt's broad influence.
