Description
Immortalized in many of his greatest portraits, Hendrickje Stoffels was Rembrandt's common-law wife - and it is through her eyes that we are plunged into the midst of both a passionate affair and a turbulent era of Dutch history.
Reviews
"This incredibly affecting work is both a story of a great, troubled, bohemain love affair and a hugely detailed historical portraiti of a tumul]tuous period in which Hendrickje's suffering and loyalty as Rembrandt's maligned common-law wife provides the linchpin to a sensuously wrought vision of the age."
Author description
