Rembrandt

Over the holiday break, I read Ulrich Boser’s fascinating account of the robbery of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. One of the paintings that disappeared on that March night was Rembrandt’s The Storm on the Sea of Galilee, his only seascape and apparently, in the eyes of many art historians, a representative example of chiaroscuro.

Here’s a reading on Rembrandt with a vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet to accompany it.

If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
