Rembrandt: Painter of Stories

Painter of Stories focuses on Rembrandt's foremost artistic ambition - history painting. He made certain developments in his technique in order to achieve this aim, and numerous pupils and followers were attracted to this aspect of his art. Fifty of Rembrandt's masterpieces were chosen in a survey of his artistic development as well as twenty paintings formerly attributed to him that are in fact the work of identified pupils - a juxtaposition that will introduce a large public to the continual debate on authenticity among Rembrandt experts. This video complements Art in the Making (296) and is itself both purposeful and enlightening.
