Marijn Schapelhouman
Rembrandt en de kunst van het tekenen
Zwolle (Waanders) 2010

In het prentenkabinet van het Rijksmuseum bevinden zich ongeveer zestig eigenhandige tekeningen van Rembrandt, variërend van een zelfportret, figuur- en genrestudies tot bijbelse scènes, landschappen, naakten en dieren. Hoewel Rembrandt vooral beroemd is als schilder blijkt uit zijn tekeningen dat hij ook de tekenkunst als geen ander beheerste. In dit dossier worden alle Rembrandttekeningen uit het Rijksmuseum in kleur afgebeeld en in een voor een breed publiek toegankelijke tekst beschreven.
