Description Rembrandt's Home, Amsterdam in 1656

128 pages, Hard cover.

Once in a while, a bankruptcy can be a blessing. Take the bankruptcy
of Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669) in 1656 as a case in point. Thanks to the
inventory that was drawn up on July 25 of that year, we have a complete list of
his possessions. This list and Rembrandt’s House itself inspired Menno Balm
to produce this richly illustrated book.
Menno Balm takes us back to Amsterdam in the 17th Century. When the city
was the bustling trade centre of the World. He shows us how Rembrandt’s
house was when he was still living and working there.
The Art Historian and artist Menno Balm (1982) was the educator at the
Rembrandt House Museum for many years, and had ample opportunity to
immerse himself in all the available information. His expertise as a painter and
draughtsman has led to this remarkable and informative book.
Rembrandt’s Home, Amsterdam in 1656 is essential reading for everyone who wishes to know more about the Netherlands’ most famous painter and about daily life during the Golden Age of Amsterdam!
