Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, /'rɛmbrɑnt 'hɑrmənsˌzo:n vɑn rɛɪ̯n/, meglio noto semplicemente come Rembrandt , è stato un pittore e incisore olandese.

Viene generalmente considerato uno dei più grandi pittori della storia dell'arte europea e il più importante di quella olandese. Il suo periodo di attività coincide con quello che gli storici definiscono l'età dell'oro olandese.

Dopo aver ottenuto un grande successo fin da giovane come pittore ritrattista, i suoi ultimi anni furono segnati da tragedie personali e difficoltà economiche. I suoi disegni e dipinti furono popolari già durante la sua vita, la sua reputazione rimase alta e per vent'anni fu maestro di quasi tutti i più importanti pittori olandesi. I più grandi trionfi creativi di Rembrandt sono evidenti specialmente nei ritratti dei suoi contemporanei, nei suoi autoritratti e nelle illustrazioni di scene tratte dalla Bibbia.

Sia nella pittura che nella stampa egli esibì una completa conoscenza dell'iconografia classica che modellò per adattarla alle proprie esigenze. Così, la rappresentazione di scene bibliche era costituita dalla sua conoscenza dei relativi testi, dall'influenza delle tematiche classiche e dall'osservazione della popolazione ebrea di Amsterdam. Per la sua comprensione della condizione umana, inoltre, fu definito "uno dei grandi profeti della civiltà".

„Autograph inscription on Rembrandt's drawing of the old City hall of Amsterdam, 9 July 1652; Benesch 1278 (translation from the original Dutch: Anne Porcelijn)“

—  Rembrandt van rijn
Rembrandt made this drawing two days after the old Town-hall at Dam square in Amsterdam was burned out; the spotlight attracted a lot of attention and various artists have drawn the remains of the historic building. Two days after the fire, Rembrandt laid down the ruins of the building in a drawing. He made the sketch on the spot, standing or seated at (or in) the old daring building on the Dam, as he himself wrote in the inscription. http://remdoc.huygens.knaw.nl/#/document/remdoc/e1643

Quote of Rembrandt, recorded by his pupil Samuel van Hoogstraten, 1678 http://remdoc.huygens.knaw.nl/#/document/remdoc/e14113;as cited by W.Gs Hellinga, Rembrandt fecit 1642: de Nachtwacht, Gysbrecht van Aemstel', J.M. Meulenhoff, Amsterdam 1956, p. 4 (translation from the original Dutch: Anne Porcelijn) Rembrandt is teaching his student Samuel van Hoogstraten (c. 1642), http://www.dbnl.org/tekst/hell014remb01_01/ according to W. Gs. Hellinga

„.. in order to etch, take white turpentine oil, and add half the turpentine to it; pour the mixture into a small glass bottle and let it boil in pure [? ] water for half an hour.“

Rembrandt's 'recipe for a stopping-out varnish' on the verso of a drawing 'Landcape with a River and Trees', undated, c. 1654-55; (Benesch 1351) http://remdoc.huygens.knaw.nl/#/document/remdoc/e12886 It is evident that Rembrandt refers (alas fragmentarily) to a so-called 'stopping-out varnish', used to terminate the bite of acid in select areas of a plate that had already been exposed to the etching agent. Thus other portions will remain exposed to the acid to deepen the bite. Also Samuel van Hoogstraten, the first student of Rembrandt in Amsterdam, mentions the use of such a varnish in his 'Inleyding tot de Hooge Schoolde der Schilderkunst', Middelburg 1671 / Rotterdam 1678

„Quote from Rembrandt's 5th letter to Constantijn Huygens (Amsterdam, 27 January 1639), as cited in The Rembrandt Documents, Walter Strauss & Marjon van der Meulen - Abaris Books, New York 1979, p. 167.“

—  Rembrandt van rijn
What Rembrandt is referring to is a little painting he sent Huygens as a gift together with his letter. This quote clarifies Rembrandt's option about the light and distance, necessary for showing his painting and its colors in the right way.

„A painting is not made to be sniffed. [but viewed from a distance - see also Rembrandt's quote in his letter to Constantijn Huygens, Amsterdam, 27 Jan. 1639]“
