One of the most fascinating aspects of Rembrandt's extraordinary artistic career is his suite of brooding half-length portraits of religious figures from the late 1650s and early 1660s. Painted during a difficult time in the artist's life—when he no longer enjoyed a ready market for his works and may have turned to his deep religious convictions for solace—these images are among the most evocative Rembrandt created. For years scholars have debated whether these paintings were intended as a series, yet until now these works have, unbelievably, never been shown together.An exhibition by the National Gallery of Art and this accompanying catalog assemble seventeen of the paintings for the first time, finally giving the powerful images their due. Many of these subtle and wondrous paintings have been identified as images of apostles and evangelists, but among them are also representations of Christ, the Virgin, and still-unidentified saints and monks. In Rembrandt's typical fashion, the men and women in these portraits peer out of the dark recesses of dimly lit interiors as though burdened by the weight of their spiritual and emotional concerns. Yet recent archival research has raised questions about their attribution, the relationships among the paintings, and, in a broader sense, Rembrandt's life and career—issues addressed by the contributors to this volume. With its lavish color images and state-of-the-field research, Rembrandt's Late Religious Portraits will make a profound contribution to the understanding of this unique and provocative body of work.

Peter C. Sutton is director at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Connecticut. Anne T. Woollett is assistant curator of paintings at the J. Paul Getty Museum.

Ironfire
This exhibition showed at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, then at the Getty Center in Los Angeles in 2005
It contains 16 paintings by Rembrandt.
They are portraits. Rembrandt painted many religious works, most involved more than one person.
In this exhibition the late religious portraits are in view- ie there is only one person

The catalogue is written by notable Rembrandt scholars.
There are three essays at the start of the book.
Rembrandt's Apostles and Evangelists. Arthur K Whitlock

To get the most out of the exhibition you need to know what Apostles and Evangelists are. I suggest you look it up.

There are 17 Rembrandt's ( I have seen 3 of them while working in the UK.) Note one painting is School of Rembrandt.
These are late Rembrandt's (some paintings differcult to date but from about 1655- onwards ) Rembrandt 1657-1669

Comments on some paintings

No 14. The Virgin of Sorrows. 1661.
She is shown three quarter length. Hear head is gently titled to the right. ( the viewer's left)
Her eye look downwards but also meet the viewer's gaze. Her arms are crossed, the upper arm has the hand just below her right side of her bust. The lower arm supports her right hand.
The background of the picture is black which may go along with the theme of sorrow.
Her face is partly in shadow.
She wears a heavy headdress and a heavy ? Coat.
The scene is lite up by the luminous cream pelted garment.
We do not see what holds her gaze, there is no book, no part of the dead body of Christ etc.
Like so many of Rembrandt's works it is a profound mediation on it's subject.

The Apostle Paul.
Paul features prominently in this show wing ph 3 of the 16 Rembrandt Paintings.
All are older men.
All have a book in front of them.
In one Paul is about to write, he has quill in hand.
In another he looks down at a book, his hands are folded.
In the third it is the Self Poetrait. He looks out at us with his eyes fixed on our eyes.

I had written a longer review but something upset Amazon and it was rejected.

Bought this used and it arrived, carefully wrapped, in perfect condition at a price which was about one quarter the price of a brand new book. This book is an accompaniment to an exhibition so in the ideal scenario you would be viewing the actual paintings and then have the book as a guide and a reference. As as a stand-alone reference it is still helpful as the essays are excellent. The reproductions are good quality. But the scale of the book and the reproductions just doesn't convey the power of the paintings. Worth having but makes me wished I had seen the exhibit.

the painting of the prodigal's return was in this book as I had hoped. It is very interesting to read about the painting with its meanings as well as the other paintings which will take me some time to finish
Sadaron above the Gods
Perfect book in great condition, for a fraction of the original price. Happy with this purchase. Thank you very much.

This ordered as replacement for treasured volume lost in a move. When the book arrived gift-wrapped and in pristine condition, I immediately looked thru all pages discovering that I admired it more than ever before. I immediately placed it in a prominent place on a shelf devoted to favorite artists. Painter of the soul Rembrandt creates a consummate portrait of Jesus here that for me elevates this volume to a sacred category. So immortal Rembrandt continues to illuminate our lives and souls.

This book is the catalogue for a marvelous exhibition held at the National Gallery in Washington and the Getty in Los Angeles in 2005. It concentrates on the figures of apostles the artist painted in the late 1650's and early 1660's, complemented with two portraits of the Virgin. There are some fantastic discoveries, such as the little-known 1661 Virgin of Sorrows (in the collection of a small French museum in the city of Epinal)or the haunting Saint Bavo (Göteborgs Konstmuseum). Each painting is thoroughly analysed and the introductory essays written by experts in the field (National Gallery curator Arthur Wheelock especially)show how important religion was to the artist's life and art.

A valuable addition to the literature on Rembrandt with many high-quality illustrations and, rare enough to be noted, numerous magnified details which enable the reader to distinguish the artist's thick layers of paint.
