How Rembrandt Reveals Your Beautiful Imperfect Self

How Rembrandt Reveals Your Beautiful Imperfect Self: Life Lessons from the Master, by Roger Housden, from Harmony Books, ISBN 1400082293. Rembrandt, one of the greatest artists of all time, was spectacularly successful in his youth, bankrupt by his fifties, and died unsung in 1669 at age 63. He buried four of his five children and the two loves of his life, and saw his patrons choose the uninspired work of his pupils over his own increasingly innovative style. Yet adversity only deepened his faith and his genius. In this part biography, part history, part art appreciation, the author of the Ten Poems series takes inspiration from Rembrandt's life and work.
