Rembrandt van Rijn (1603-1669) is known as one of the greatest painters and etchers of the Dutch Golden Age. His stunning portraits, landscapes and Biblical imagery earned him the reputation of a highly skilled and innovative artist. He is credited with developing the art of chiaroscuro, the use of light and shadow to create depth and perception. After losing three of his four children and wife at early ages, he became depressed and destitute. Local authorities ordered him to relinquish all his money and possessions to pay bills, but he was able to keep his original etchings. He is also known for the 40 self portraits he did over his lifetime.
