Rembrandt (1606–1669) is counted among the great masters of drawing of all time, and his drawings have been highly valued from the start. In terms of number and quality, the Berlin Kupferstichkabinett has one of the best collections of Rembrandt drawings in the world, whose only comparable rival is probably the collection at the British Museum in London. With the exception of the rare studies of animals, this exquisite monograph presents a full spectrum of the genres and materials involved in the drawings, from the early to the later works.Of the 130 drawings in the Berlin collection formerly considered works done by Rembrandt alone, only 55 can be confirmed as such, according to Holm Bevers, Assistant Director of the Berlin Kupferstichkabinett and author of this publication. This knowledgeable investigation therefore focuses on the very difficult process of differentiating among the hands that created the works. It has scientifically deciphered the Berlin collection and distinguished current research from prior research. In addition, this attractive volume provides extensive answers to questions regarding the function, iconography, and the style of the drawings.
