Description
Published to mark the 400th anniversary of the artist's birth, this incisive little book from art historian and poetry translator Michael Taylor looks at Rembrandt's self-portraits and society portraits, the historical paintings and biblical scenes, and identifies how the artist rendered his subjects so alive, full of earthy, flesh-and-blood vitality. It all boils down to his treatment of the nose, argues Taylor in this gem of a book. Engaging with the works themselves, he gives us a close-up, candid appraisal of each, interwoven with racy historical snippets in the context of Rembrandt's life, artistic techniques, and breakthroughs.

"Zooming in on the center of Rembrandt's faces, Michael Taylor finds meanings we all have missed. What appeals to me most in his lyrical appreciation is that he writes not only about what Rembrandt's noses look like, but also how they smell and breathe."—Gary Schwartz

"Anyone who took art history (or lots of art history) will laugh with recognition—we've all wondered why the hell Rembrandt painted all of his men with enormous drunkard's noses. Finally the answers (or speculations) in book form."—Dave Eggers
