How did a miller's son from a provincial town become the greatest artist of his age? Seeking the roots of a genius, Onno Blom immersed himself in Leiden, the city in which Rembrandt spent his first 25 years. Making the most of limited historical data, Blom tracked down old maps, sought out the family house, and walked Rembrandt's route to school, while studying the artist's haunts: the library, botanical garden, and anatomy theater. Featuring 100 illustrations, this "fresh, well-researched, nuanced portrait" (Kirkus Reviews) captures Rembrandt, but also the turbulent Dutch Golden Age.
