Rembrandt and the Human Psyche

North York Central Library 5120 Yonge Street, North York

Rembrandt has become synonymous with genius. He quickly transformed the artistic culture of his home town of Leyden, after which his most brilliant works arose when he moved to Amsterdam. There his portraits as much as his biblical paintings explored notions of conscience and the self that soon became an integral part of our understanding of the individual.
