Rembrandt's Eyes
by Simon Schama
Perhaps the greatest of the Dutch Masters, Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn is justly remembered for his innovative work and for his marketing savvy (a true Dutchman).  He was a master of etching and chiaroscuro (light and shadow).  Unlike most artists, Rembrandt was very successful during his lifetime, having a bevy of patrons amongst the wealthy burghers of Amsterdam. His house is a popular tourist attraction. His famous huge painting, "The Night Watch", hangs in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

Note: The most famous of the Dutch masters, Rembrandt achieved great success during his lifetime.
