Overview

• The book is an edited and illustrated version of the original one and includes 35 or more unique illustrations which are relevant to its content.
• Rembrandt by Mortimer Luddington Menpes (22 February 1855 – 1 April 1938), an Australian-born artist, author, printmaker and illustrator. “Rembrandt worked more or less in two stages: first, by a carefully-painted monochrome, handled in such a way as to give texture as well as drawing, and in which the masses of light and shade are defined in a masterly manner; second, by putting on the rich, golden colour—mostly in the form of glazes, but with a full brush. This method of handling glazes over monochrome has given a gem-like quality to Rembrandt's work, so much so that you might cut out any square inch from any portion of his pictures and wear it as a jewel.”
