REMBRANDT


    Rembrandt Harmensz van Ryn, son of Harmen Gerritsz van Ryn, miller
    (d. 1630), and Neeltge Willemsdochter (d. 1640), daughter of a
    baker of Zuytbroeck; born at Leyden, July 15, 1606; entered Leyden
    University as a student of letters, May 20, 1620, but left before
    the end of the year; studied painting for about three years in his
    native town under Jacob Isaaksz van Swanenburgh, and at the age of
    seventeen for about six months under Pieter Lastman in Amsterdam;
    settled in Leyden from 1624 until 1631, removing with his sister
    Lysbeth to Amsterdam in the latter half of 1631; married Saskia
    van Ulenburch, June 1634; from 1639 to 1658 lived in the
    Breestraat (in the house which is now open to the public); lost
    his wife in 1642; from about 1652 Hendrikje Stoffels, who had been
    his servant, lived with him as his wife, until her death about
    1664; Rembrandt’s material success as a painter was
    counterbalanced by his zeal for collecting works of art, and in
    1656 he was forced by his creditors to declare bankrupt; an
    inventory of the contents of his house, made in view of the sales
    which took place in 1657 and 1658, is still preserved; the last
    part of his life was spent in a lodging on the Rozengracht, and
    all the money that he earned went to his creditors whom he never
    satisfied; he died and was buried in the Westerkerk, Amsterdam,
    October 4, 1669.


The formal style of art, the essence of line-engraving, reached its zenith
in Albrecht Dürer.  And Dürer was so great a master that human feeling
told through the medium of the severest formalism.  But it was not till a
century later that human expression found its full outlet in an artist
whose sympathy was at once penetrating and comprehensive, who perfected a
medium capable of the most spontaneous rendering of the deepest as well as
the most fleeting emotions of life.

As a painter Rembrandt was chiefly devoted to portraiture, a devotion no
doubt largely due to the conviction that its study gives the most
immediate opportunity for depicting human character. But it must also be
confessed that the overwhelmingly large proportion of portraits to other
subjects in his painted work may be partly owing to the demands of
clients.  That it was not entirely so is immediately evident when one
considers the master’s untiring industry in painting portraits of himself
after his popularity had waned, and commissions nearly ceased.
Nevertheless as works for the most part uncommissioned and less lucrative
than the paintings, we may take it that the etchings are a true reflection
of the actual tendency of Rembrandt’s genius when least affected by
demands from outside.  In his etched work we find that portraits are much
less numerous, and by far the largest place is given to the subjects from
scripture, treated with the same reality that characterises his sketches
from daily life.

Rembrandt’s affection for scriptural subjects is a striking fact in face
of the general character of Dutch art in the seventeenth century.  The
reformation in Holland seems to have helped towards the exclusion of art
from the domain of religion; and the merely formal and superficial
rendering of biblical stories by the classicists of the late sixteenth
century may have also had much to account for the secular reaction of the
succeeding period.  But Rembrandt had no need to seek new ground to escape
from a formal rendering of well-known themes.  Like most masters of
supreme genius, his originality consisted in the realisation of his own
deepest and most personal emotion in his treatment of the old stories.
They appealed to him as the vehicle of the noblest thoughts of man in
relation to himself and God, and he was practically the first artist who
dared approach the Scriptures in the spirit of reality that implied a
living faith rather than an official creed.

It is perhaps still not superfluous to emphasise the fact that the
etchings of Rembrandt (as of nearly all the painter-engravers or etchers)
are original works distinct in methods and aims from the paintings or
works in any other medium.  In Rembrandt’s work of rather more than three
hundred etchings there are scarcely half a dozen subjects that correspond
with his pictures.  In general the original engraver or etcher conceives
and carries out his design in specific relation to its medium; its
expression in another would demand an entirely different treatment.

Rembrandt worked on copper in pure etching and dry-point.  In pure etching
the plate is first covered with a thin layer or ground of wax composition;
the etcher draws through this ground (which offers scarcely any
resistance) with an etching needle, opening up the surface of the copper
where he wishes his lines to appear.  The plate is then put in a bath of
acid which bites the furrows in the unprotected parts of the plate, i.e.
wherever the needle has been drawn through the ground.  Dry-point, though
generally regarded as a branch of etching, as it is so constantly used on
the same plate as bitten work, is in reality more akin to line-engraving.
No acid is used, and the lines are scratched on the surface of the copper
by a strong steel point.  The artist does not push this point before the
hand like the graver, but uses it in the same way as a pencil.  The curl
of metal thrown up at the side of the line is not scraped away as in
line-engraving, where the aim is clearness of designs, but left to hold
the ink, enwrapping the line, as printed from the furrows, in a rich
cloudy tone.  This curl of metal, or “burr” (a term also applied to the
velvety tone which it causes), is extremely delicate, and a comparatively
few impressions suffice to level it with the surface of the copper, and
leave the effect a mere ghost of the artist’s intention.  So that rich
impressions from dry-points are infinitely rarer than good ones from the
pure etchings, which often yield hundreds of prints without greatly
deteriorating in quality.  But the more delicate the etching and the
closer the mesh of line, the sooner will deterioration of quality set in,
so that a glance at the character of an etching, granting that the plate
was not destroyed after a very limited issue, will almost immediately
reveal one important point, i.e. the comparative rarity of good
impressions.  It is clear and strong open line prints such as the _Christ
at Emmaus_ of 1654 (_282_) of which moderate impressions are not so
valuable, for such plates were still in fair condition for printing as
late as the eighteenth century.

Pure etching is often combined with dry-point, the latter being used to
give emphasis and strength to an etching of greater uniformity of tone.
Rembrandt did not begin to use dry-point until about 1639, e.g. in the
_Death of the Virgin_ (_161_), but it is not handled with any richness of
effect until such works as the _Triumph of Mordecai_ (_172_) which
probably dates several years later.  A print like the _Three Trees_
(_205_) might seem from the reproduction to have the rich tone that comes
from dry-point, but in this case the dark effect is almost entirely due to
a close mesh of pure etched lines.  The real quality of dry-point may be
better studied in some of the lightly sketched lines in the foreground of
the _Artist drawing from a model_ (_231_), e.g. the palm branch on the
right.

In his early period up till about 1640, Rembrandt’s etching is
characterised by a clear lineal manner with little tendency to the
chiaroscuro which gradually became the characteristic feature of his
artistic style in etching as well as in painting.  Later he tends to a
greater breadth of treatment in line, and a less imitative treatment of
physical form.  At first his experiments in chiaroscuro were produced by
the close mesh of etched lines, but it must be confessed that etching as
such rather loses its character when the line is so entirely lost in tone.
Even the _Hundred Guilder Print_ (_236_) holds its unrivalled place in the
art of etching rather for the genius that overcame supreme difficulties
than for the supreme fitness of the style in relation to the medium.
Rembrandt never showed the breadth of his sympathy and his powers of
observation better than in this plate, but for grandeur of conception,
concentration of material, and a vigorous handling more in keeping with
the scale of his subject, he attained a nobler—I think his
noblest—creation in the _Three Crosses_ (_270_).  The changes introduced
in this plate in a later state are remarkable, and show how completely the
etcher can transform his subject.  Here the changes are astonishingly
drastic, and may have been intended to direct us to an entirely different
moment in the drama of the Crucifixion.  In other examples, such as the
_Christ presented to the People_  (_271_) and the _Landscape with trees,
farm-buildings, and a tower_ (_244_), one sees how Rembrandt was
constantly striving in the progress of his states towards greater
concentration of idea, effecting it in the former by the removal of an
entire group of figures, in the latter by the lopping of a cupola on the
church tower.  Except for an occasional plate like the _Clement de Jonghe_
(_251_) with its open line after the manner of Van Dyck, Rembrandt kept to
the method of close painter-like shading throughout the latter part of his
life, but in his subject prints he almost entirely discarded this method
of chiaroscuro for a more luminous and mysterious shadow effected by the
surface tinting of a more broadly etched plate. The various states of the
_Entombment_ (_281_), first with the line quite open, then with some added
shading partially aided by a surface tint, exemplify the manner of his
progress. In this wonderful plate, and nearly all the subjects of his
later period, Rembrandt had attained a dignity of composition which we
find in few painters outside Venice.  In spite of his thoroughly Dutch
temperament, Rembrandt had learnt much from the Italians, and in nothing
more than in space composition.  A very large proportion of his early
etchings are studies of seperate figures.  Only by this constant study of
pieces of life was perfected the power by which his greater conceptions
were realised with such unity of effect.

Rembrandt took longer than many a weaker artist to reach his maturity, not
that his progress was slower, but the maturity much higher, and even his
old age seemed like youth in its perennial receptivity and power of
vigorous growth.  A well-known connoisseur of the time, Constantin
Huygens, writing in 1631, was more impressed by Lievens’s brilliant
flights of invention than by Rembrandt’s vivid power of expressing
character and emotion.  But while the former and so many of his
contemporaries were content with their own facility and the convention
they had reached, Rembrandt never remitted the ardour of the great quest
which was the very blood of his life.  Constantly breaking new paths, and
losing at each new turn his earlier patrons, who failed to follow the
progress of his genius, he died in comparative neglect, only to be
rediscovered by the moderns as one who still belongs to the most living
style of art.

A few etchers of the last two or three generations have taken a step
further or aside in this or that direction, more particularly in the art
of landscape, but even Whistler, at once the supreme virtuoso and the
greatest individuality of nineteenth-century etching, falls far short of
Rembrandt in the one thing which makes or mars genius of the highest
order, i.e. depth of humanity, without surpassing him in the technical
mastery of expressive line.  Rembrandt remains for us the greatest etcher
who has ever lived, as well as one of the noblest exponents in art of the
deepest and most generous emotions of life.
