Old Rembrandt sat between two young painters and a group of beautiful girls.

They treated Rembrandt standing on the street as a crazy old man, bought him a drink and asked him to play king Solomon.

Rembrandt may have seen his youth in them and accepted the invitation.

“Sorrow grows with wisdom.

” in a roar of laughter, Rembrandt recited King Solomon’s proverbs.

Maybe it’s the wine.

His old eyes are wet and bright.

To the laughing young man, Rembrandt told his life.

This is the last paragraph of the film Rembrandt.

The previous subtitle is “the last year.

” Rembrandt (1606-1669) occupies a position in the history of painting – not only in the Netherlands, but in the history of painting all over Europe, which is comparable to the giants of the Italian Renaissance.

He represents the national character and national genius of northern Europe.

What makes Rembrandt great is a special technique to express his special Soul: light and darkness.

The term has a special meaning when it is used to refer to the painter.

In other words, Rembrandt’s light and shade are quite different from those of Renaissance Italian writers.

French 19th century painter and critic Florentine regarded him as a “noctilucent”.

Others say he paints light with darkness.

Rembrandt was the son of a Leyden Miller.

His father sent him to college to make him a lawyer.

Because of his natural love of painting, Rembrandt dropped out of college after only six months.

He first studied with a painter in Rotterdam.

When he was ten a years old, he went to Amsterdam and entered the studio of rastman, a famous fellow painter who advocated Italian painting style.

After he became famous, Rembrandt’s first works were portraits of his father, brother, mother and sister.

Among them, one of his brothers wearing gold helmets was the best, showing the painter’s new exploration achievements: using the technique of strong contrast between light and shade to highlight the main parts of the image and create the effect of psychological depiction.

This painting method makes the theme bright, especially the texture of the light receiving part is very strong, and the rest of the picture is very dark.

European art historians call it “purple golden darkness”.

Soon, his huge collective portrait of Professor dupe’s anatomy class established his artistic reputation.

This kind of collective portrait with custom is the need of the times.

Before the camera came out, bourgeois trade associations liked to hang this kind of painting.

Rembrandt settled in Amsterdam in 1632.

At the age of 28, he married a famous girl saskiah.

At this time, his reputation for painting had been preliminarily established.

Saskia was originally a cousin of William Burke, an art dealer known by the painter.

Rembrandt met when he was invited to paint her.

They fell in love at first sight.

Rembrandt insisted on marrying her, but her relatives disagreed.

Saskiah, who lost her parents since childhood, is the daughter of the late mayor luwharton and has a considerable legacy.

Despite all opposition and efforts, Rembrandt finally became a family member.

His wife’s wealthy family became the foundation of Rembrandt’s career success.

Rembrandt’s portrait painting has entered an unprecedented artistic level after middle age.

In short, it is simple, true and pay attention to the inner world of the characters.

Realistic portrait painting is still simple and unadorned, which is a valuable artistic standard.

It can be understood by people and stand the test of years.

It also has lasting significance in appreciation and aesthetics.

This is why Rembrandt’s portrait can coexist with history for a long time.

Moreover, its simplicity can better reveal the pure state of mind of an ordinary person’s image.

Rembrandt was an upper class portrait painter until his wife died in 1642.

After that, his career began to decline and Rembrandt began to fall into debt.

When Rembrandt died in 1669, he left no property except a few old clothes and paintings.

The vicissitudes of life and the warmth of human feelings have marked Rembrandt’s paintings with a strong brand of life.

In fact, the great changes in life have indeed led to significant changes in Rembrandt’s painting.

His paintings can be divided into two categories before he is 40 years old.

One is the portrait painting that lacks originality but has skilled skills, such as anatomy class and shipbuilder.

The other is mythological and religious paintings created in an exaggerated or even crude style, such as the robbery of proselpina and Samson’s blindness.

At this time, although Rembrandt was also an excellent painter in the Netherlands, or even a genius, he would not be a master with great influence and originality.

A few years after his wife’s death, in 1644, the embarrassment caused by the deterioration of Rembrandt’s life began to affect the development of his painting style.

Rembrandt stopped painting mediocre portraits and some mysterious mythological themes.

He began to choose more and more themes with profound human nature.

He injected the themes of fatherly love, compassion and forgiveness into religious themes.

The poor life also changed his vision.

He painted the ordinary poor people in the lower class into his works.

If the virgin in the Renaissance has become an idealized noble woman in the upper class society of the world, then in Rembrandt’s holy family, the virgin has become a peasant woman in an ordinary poor family, and her family is indeed a simple and warm peasant family.

At this time, Rembrandt placed his ideals on the cheap and ugly ordinary people with an attitude of facing the reality.

The coldness of the world makes Rembrandt’s ideal of man deeper.

An unprecedented expression of the character’s soul began to appear in his figure painting.

Rembrandt carefully observed his performance objects.

He carefully expressed their posture full of psychological dialysis and the subtle relationship between human and human emotional communication, as well as the long-term meaning of their hearts revealed by every detail on their faces.

Rembrandt’s self portrait is famous.

The young carefree Rembrandt once painted himself as a comic beautifying youth, a playful prodigal son and a dress up courtier of the Renaissance.

He carefully studied his facial features and various expressions, different styles of skin and head, adopted various postures, wore various clothes, and used different light, until the deep impression of poor life on his face.

Rembrandt’s characters always reveal complex spiritual information to us.

Rembrandt’s paintings have rich emotional colors.

His colors are always so deep and thick.

In a dark brown tone, he carefullyUsing a limited number of bright colors.

He uses the luxurious flash of the fabric to form a beautiful warm tone in the bright golden yellow and vermilion embellishment.

From time to time, he intersperses some bright blue, green and other cold colors in this tone to make its color shine like a gem.

Perhaps Rembrandt’s use of light is more impressive.

Just as he used light and shade carefully, he also used light and shade uniquely.

He freely and dramatically deals with the light and dark in complex paintings.

He uses light to strengthen the main parts of the painting and let the dark parts weaken and melt the secondary factors.

His magic shading not only formed the strong dramatic color in his plot painting, but also formed the important characteristics of Rembrandt’s painting.

Italian Renaissance master Da Vinci said: “a painter can only draw portraits, but he can’t be called a master.

” Rembrandt is a versatile painter.

He painted portraits, portraits and landscapes.

He also painted extremely exquisite etching copper prints.

He is the most important figure in all categories of Dutch painting.

Undoubtedly, Rembrandt is also one of the most important masters affecting the development of painting in the world.

Van Gogh, the great Dutch painter of later generations, once said to Rembrandt’s paintings: “you know, as long as I chew hard bread and sit in front of this painting for two weeks, I will be willing to live ten years less.

” This is the immortal charm of great art.

Rembrandt made thousands of oil paintings, copperplate paintings and sketches in his life, and portrait painting accounted for the largest proportion.

At that time, the portraits were not pure portraits because of the requirements of the emerging civil class.

Rembrandt first painted many portraits for his family members, such as the mother reading the Bible, the wife disguised as the flower god, the brother wearing a copper helmet, the son in a priest’s uniform, and the most representative portrait of the husband and wife with the painter holding his wife Saskia holding a wine glass.

These portraits have specific scenes.

This is a Dutch portrait and the main feature of Rembrandt’s portrait.
