Rembrandt was the most famous painter of the Dutch Golden Age, and the opportunity to work in his studio attracted young artists for nearly four decades. This Getty Museum exhibition catalogue explores the workings of the studio in the form of drawings made by the master himself and 15 of his pupils, resulting in a fascinating chance to for modern viewers to appreciate the differing styles and approaches. Organized chronologically, this study presents more than 40 works by Rembrandt and related drawings by his pupils, most notably, Carel Fabritius. The text gives a sense of what it was like to study in this special time and place, and explains how these sketches were authenticated.
