Rembrandt Harmenszoon Van Rijin (July 15, 1606—October 4, 1669) was born in Leiden, Dutch Republic (the Netherland).  He was generally considered as one of the greatest painters and printmakers in European and the most important one in Dutch history.  He achieved a gtreat success as a portrait painter in his youth.   Rembrant’s image results were exemplified especially in his portraits of his contemporaries, self-portraits and illustrtions of scenes from the Bible.  Rembrandt’s self-portraits were like an unique and intimate biography, in which the artist surbeyed himself without vanity and with the utmost sincerity.  He has been called “one of the gratest prophets of civilization”for his empathy for the human condition, so that he exhibited knowledge of his own experience. 
Rembrandt’s family was quite well-to-do for his father was a miller and his mother was a baber’s daughter, and he was the ninth child in his family.  He was enrolled at the University of Leiden when he was 14, and he was apprenticed to a Leiden history painter in Amstedam at the age of 17.  Then he backed to his hometown and began to accept students in 1627.  At the end of 1631, he moved to Amsterdam and began to practice as a professional portraitist for the first time, with a greatsuccess finally.  From 1640s, he often hung about countries to paint, many of Rembrant’s image results at that time were reflected of the beauty of the nature. 
The same as the painter Durer in the period of Renaissance,  Rembrandt’s self-portraits filled a special emotion with and left a great deal of his welf-portraits, including Rembrant’s image results in paintings techniques of sketch, line drawing, print and oil painting.  His creative works created in each period were reflected the painter’s different artist characteristic of the time.  There were more than 600 of sketches, over 300 of prints and over 2000 of line drawings of his all paintings he left behind.  It was almost more than 100 of Rembrandt’s self-portraits and nearly every of his family members were turned up in his paintings.  Rembrandt outlived both his 3 children and his wife, who only left a youngest child alived.  Then he lived with his maidservant, she gave birth to a daughter for Rembrandt but died earlier than him.  But as a follower of the Bible, it was condemned by the church as “evil of life”in Dutch history.  He was died of disease in 1669, only accompanying with his daughter before his death, he was eventually buried in an unmarked grae in Westerkerk in Amsterdam. 
Throughout his career,  Rembrant’s image results were taken as his primary subjects the themes of portraiture,  landscape and narrative painting.   For the last,  he was especially praised by his contemporaries,  who extolled him as a masterly interpreter of stories of the Bible for his skill in representing emotions and attention to detail.   Stylistically,  his paintings progressed from the early "smooth" manner,  characterized by fine technique in the portrayal of illusionistic form,  to the late "rough" treatment of richly variegated paint surfaces,  which allowed for an illusionism of form suggested by the tactile quality of the paint itself.  He was not only an example in Dutch history, but also around the world. 
Rembrandt's own studio practice was a major factor in the difficulty of attribution, and like many masters before him,  he encouraged his students to copy his paintings,  sometimes finished or retouched them to be sold as originals,  and sometimes sold them as authorized copies.   Additionally,  his style proved easy enough for his most talented students to emulate.  Now our artists here provid oil painting reproductions of Rembrandt.  You should tell us if you find some of you like on our site, and we will try our utmost to achieve your requests !
