Commissioned by the Rijksmuseum, this graphic biography by Typex (the pseudonym of Dutch artist Raymond Koot), episodically tells the story of Rembrandt’s operatic and tumultuous life. Through this engaging format, one of the most iconic figures of European art history is poetically humanized. Typex is careful not to offer an overly romanticized view of Rembrandt’s successes or struggles, anchoring the story in the perspective of those closest to him in different seasons of life. This unconventional biography is a thoughtful examination of a complex and passionate artist.
