Rembrandt's academy – the painting techniques of the master & his students

Activity: Talk or presentationLecture and oral contribution


Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669) was the most innovative history and portrait painter of his time and he had more than 50 recorded students. Most works by these individuals remain anonymous, however their technique reveals aspects of the master's working habits and also indicates how the students adapted this for their own purposes. Comparing Rembrandt's autograph works with those of his followers offers us insights into the teaching and influences he had on his time. To understand these aspects, we have to delve under the skin of the paintings and study under-modellings and under-drawings.
