The Blindness of the Experts: Rembrandt and Bol


DVD: Rembrandt - An Introduction



This Seven Chapter DVD Nigel Konstam reveals Rembrandt's working methods, creative process, interests and values. Nigel takes a critical look at how the Great Master has been reinvented by modern art scholars.

    Introduction - The Deathbed of David - The Virgin and Child
  2. Experiment and Change
    Job - Rembrandt the Director
  3. Imagination - Shows how what we admire in Rembrandt's work is observed from life, and what leads scholars to disqualify is made up
    Isaac and Esau - Rembrandt Misunderstood - The Lion Hunt
  4. Mirrors - The use of mirrors proves that Rembrandt did indeed draw from life and challenges present methods of dating works of art.
    Musicians - Mummers - Two Drawings (Woman in North Holland Dress) - Many Drawings (Hagar series) - Conclusions
  5. Christ Raising a Sick Woman - Rembrandt's interests and working method
  6. The Unworthy Wedding Guest - Rembrandt shows us the inner thoughts of his characters and his own creative process
