"Rembrandt van Jijn was the greatest artist of the Dutch school and the leading portrait painter in Holland. He produced approximately 600 paintings, 300 etchings and 1,400 drawings throughout his lifetime. A master of light, shadow and rich colors, his paintings covered all genres including group portraiture, landscape and religious work. Many of these images were produced as etchings, only confirming Rembrandt's mastery of line drawing. As the Dutch painter Jozef Israels said of Rembrandt, "he was the true type of artist, free, untrammeled by traditions." This fascinating program includes: Re-creations and reconstructions ; Studies of the great works ; Commentary and analyses from leading authorities, art historians and scholars."--Container.

Very little discussion of his art works either in content or technique, and zips through his life as well. No particular production defects, but the whole is forgettable.
