Rembrandt and Italy

This planned monograph examines the many facets of Rembrandt and Italy, integrating Rembrandt’s witty commentary on and practical uses of Italian art, Dutch theoretical approaches to Italian art, and the Dutch-Italian reciprocity. Recent research reveals that Rembrandt played a more obvious role within the dynamic commercial and artistic relations between Holland and Italy than previously thought. Rembrandt, who never travelled to Italy, amassed a major collection that included rare works on paper by Italian artists; he also had an expert knowledge of the Italian paintings in Amsterdam. Throughout his oeuvre, he referred to Italian works by adapting them and disguising his sources -- an accepted, praised approach.
