The Rembrandt Database

Painting of a Laughing Man by RembrandtThe Rembrandt Database is a new research resource developed by the Netherlands Institute for Art History. The database contains detailed research material on Rembrandt’s paintings, including provenance and exhibition information, technical documentation and high resolution images. The database is particularly strong in visual material relating to the technical analysis and conservation of the paintings, including infrared and radiographic examinations and sample analysis. To give you an idea of the depth of material contained within this database, there are over 1,700 records relating to only 12 paintings! The Rembrandt Database is still in the beta stage and continues to be developed and expanded. Prints and drawings will be added in the near future.
