Images of the Feminine in Rembrandt’s Work

Females are the focus of many significant works by Rembrandt, from mythological heroines to street vendors. Nonetheless, the female image has been an underappreciated aspect of Rembrandt studies. This book examines how Rembrandt’s portrayals of women reflect his intense dialogue with pictorial tradition and the cultural climate of seventeenth-century Netherlands. In this intriguing study of Rembrandt’s artistic development, Gilboa reveals the artist’s uniquely individualized image of the feminine.
