According to art historian Simon Sharma, Rembrandt is the greatest artist of all time. In the years before his death, Rembrandt was still searching for a new artistic language – depicting the joy and pain of aging. Rembrandt’s aging did not diminish his creativity, and in the last years of his life even condensed new creative energy. His later life was a dislocated one, suffering from illness, poverty and the loss of a loved one. But in this pain, he still created beautiful and delicate works. Though regarded by the society of the time as unattractive and even bizarre, his final work is full of passion, innovation and deep self-reflection.
