Typex, like Rembrandt, is good at faces, and the doughier the better; almost everyone in this book looks like a potato.
-Guardian

Synopsis

Follow the entire painting career of Rembrandt, one of the greatest painters and printmakers in European art history and the most important in Dutch history. This is the story about one man's artistic vocation and the work it demands, about life and death, love and bereavement, fame and loss. This graphic novel aims at authenticity, and where there is an absence of facts, the author has drawn inspiration from the wealth of the anecdotes about Rembrandt's life. This unique collaborative enterprise between the author, Typex, The Netherlands foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture and the Rijk museum, home of the world's largest and most important Rembrandt collection, guarantees a spectacular result - a stunning and surprising graphic novel on Rembrandt's life.
