Rembrandt bought this beautiful bourgeois house in 1639, at this time he was already well known. It was in this imposing residence that
Rembrandt had loved Saskia (his first wife) and watched his son Titus grow up. He also worked in there because not only was the house where he lived,
it was also his workshop (some of his most celebrated works were accomplished here) and also a school for his apprentices. He lived here for nearly 20 years until his
bankruptcy in 1656 when he was obliged to sell everything. Thanks to the inventory of that sale, it was possible to reconstruct the interior of the home at the atmosphere
of the time.
Rembrandts house is today a museum which presents mainly his etchings, but he was also the creator of numerous paintings and drawings. The master of the light and dark (chiaroscuro) represents a time of glory for Amsterdam, and he is also a national symbol !
