Rembrandt van Rijn (7 images) Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669)
Rembrandt, the greatest of all the Baroque masters settled in Amsterdam in 1631. He took a sensuous interest and delight in the physical qualities of his medium, independence from the subject. He caked his surfaces with more paint than necessary, replaced exact imitation of form by the suggestion of it, and used a brown ground so that his paintings emerged from dark to light. He worked in complex layers, building up a picture from the back to the front with delicate glazes that allowed light to permeate his backgrounds and reflect off the white underpainting.
Louise Moillon (7 images) Louise Moillon (1610-1696)
Moillon is the greatest French still-life painter of the seventeenth century. She spent her career in Paris. Her paintings are exquisitely rendered with painstaking attention to detail. She worked for a number of distinguished patrons, including the highest nobility of France and King Charles I of England. Most of her work dates from the 1630's, prior to her marriage in 1640.
Johannes Vermeer (7 images) Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675)
Johannes Vermeer created luscious canvases of women and men in seventeenth-century rooms, outdoor scenes, allegory and religious themes. Intricate combinations of light, color, proportion and scale enhance the mood and reality of the subjects.
