Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn was a Dutch painter, etcher and draftsman. He is generally regarded as one of the greatest painters and etchers in European art, and as the most important Dutch master of the 17th century. Rembrandt produced a total of about three hundred paintings, three hundred etchings and two thousand drawings. His work belongs to the Baroque period and has been visibly influenced by Caravaggism, although he has never been to Italy. His remarkable mastery of the play with light and dark, often using sharp contrasts (chiaroscuro) to introduce the viewer into the performance, led to lively scenes full of drama.
