The Rembrandt StorybookBuy
Composed by Koos de Wilt
Of course, art history provides us with an ‘official’ story for every one of Rembrandt’s works. But his work has always invited the viewer to create their own story based on his paintings, etchings and drawings.
At the occasion of the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death, seven authors from the Netherlands and Flanders created their own stories accompanying famous and lesser known works by one of the greatest Dutch artists of all times, whose work continues to speak to our imagination today. Delightful stories about Rembrandt’s world, written for curious children and their parents and grandparents alike.
‘Rembrandt said his work should be regarded in bright sunlight and from a distance. The authors in this book shine a new, bright light on his work and have kept a respectful distance in creating their sparkling stories.’ – Koos de Wilt, composer
In cooperation with Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam
