BiographyRembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (July 15, 1606 or 1607– October 4, 1669) is generally considered one of the greatest painters in European art history and the most important in Dutch history. Rembrandt was also a proficient printmaker and made many drawings. His contributions to art came in a period that historians call the Dutch Golden Age (roughly coinciding with the seventeenth century), in which Dutch world power, political influence, science, commerce, and culture — particularly painting — reached their pinnacle.
"No artist ever combined more delicate skill with more energy and power," states Chambers' Biographical Dictionary. "His treatment of mankind is full of human sympathy" (J.O. Thorne: 1962). --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rembrandt_Harmenszoon_van_Rijn [Sept 2006]
