This dazzling, unconventional biography shows us why, more than three centuries after his death, Rembrandt continues to exert such a hold on our imagination. Deeply familiar to us through his enigmatic self-portraits, few facts are known about the Leiden miller's son who tasted brief fame before facing financial ruin (he was even forced to sell his beloved wife Saskia's grave). The true biography of Rembrandt, as Simon Schama demonstrates, is to be discovered in his pictures. Interweaving of seventeenth-century Holland, Schama allows us to see Rembrandt in a completely fresh and original way.… (mer)

I just finished this book today, after reading it in bits and pieces for about a year. And wow, what a staggering work of art this book is! I don't really have a clue how to 'review' it adequately. What even is Rembrandt's Eyes? It's many things: a joint biography of Peter Paul Rubens and Rembrandt Van Rijn; a highly accessible and absorbing history of 17th century Netherlands - political, religious and social - and it's also a book about art. Is it ever. The book as a whole is a horizon-widener and an immersion into worthwhile things. Reading it has taught me more about how to look at art, how to understand it in my own way - actually how to be less afraid of it. Also, I now realise something of the magnitude of Rembrandt's genius - how ahead of his time he was, and how marvellous his vision was. Without understanding the context, I would have seen him as a shadowy, browny-black kind of painter, and his later style especially wouldn't have had any meaning for me at all (blind fool that I would have been!). I owe a debt of gratitude to Simon Schama for this book - as I've said elsewhere, Schama is one of the few genuine men of letters still writing today. Real scholarship (as opposed to research grants and PhDs) with personality and individuality. A modern-day Hazlitt or Pepys. ( )

A beautiful book, full of color and b/w images, recounts the lives of Peter Paul Rubens and Rembrandt. Schama masterfully weaves art history, Dutch history, and religious-political history into a seamless story. The time period is described with real-world accuracy and an immersive quality. Besides the real and immediate, he also describes the complex and abstract issues -- from political disputes to religious quarrels -- with the same vigor and enthusiasm. If you are interested in the history of art, Dutch history, or for a rip-roaring biography, "Rembrandt's Eyes" is a book I can highly recommend. ( )

Although there are too many of them, some of the descriptions of individual pictures are vivid and moving. Schama is at his best talking straight about what he sees, when he doesn't get carried away by the aspiration to verbal pyrotechnics or by the desire to say too much of what he knows.
