Most important works

Altogether Rembrandt made three hundred or so paintings, two hundred and ninety etchings and two thousand drawings. His remarkable mastery of the interplay of light and shade, with strong contrasts (chiaroscuro), produced dynamic scenes full of drama. He inspired his pupils with this style and influenced the development of western art history. The Rembrandt House is the place where hundreds of other paintings were made under the master’s personal supervision—paintings which still have experts debating the extent of the artist’s involvement.
