- “TASCHEN’s outsize, close-up format works superbly for Rembrandt, who built his compositions on intricate details evoked in fabulously free, loose marks, every stroke its own drama, animating portraits, spiritual narratives, everyday scenes; texture, colour, light all resonate here.”
- “With these books, you have brought Rembrandt into the 21st century.”

Rembrandt's complete painted oeuvre
The Dutch Golden Age's genius in XXL resolution
Each work is imbued with feeling. Biblical scenes, like Bathsheba at her Bath, become vehicles for meditations on human longing, probing depths beyond that which is canonized in scripture or depicted in other representations. His portraits, be them of wealthy patrons or tradesmen, communicate the essence of an individual through fine demarcations, their faces bathed in an ethereal light against darkened earthtones. Perhaps most striking, his series of self-portraits is a triumph of the medium; beginning in his youth and spanning until a year prior to his death, Rembrandt’s self portraiture is an intimate glimpse into his lifelong process of self-reflection.
This XXL monograph compiles all 330 of Rembrandt’s paintings in stunning reproductions. From Belshazzar’s Feast to The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp, we discover Rembrandt’s painted oeuvre like never before.
Rudie van Leeuwen studied art history at Radboud University in Nijmegen. He obtained his PhD in 2018 on the portrait historié in 16th and 17th-century Dutch painting. Together with Volker Manuth he initiated and worked on the Rembrandt Documents Project (RemDoc.org), where he was centrally involved inter alia in the conception and implementation of the integral search function.
