Which of these legendary painters is known by his first name?
Rembrandt was a 17th-century painter and etcher whose work came to dominate what has since been named the Dutch Golden Age. His full name was Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn. Harmenszoon means that his father’s name was Harmen, and van Rijn refers to where his family lived, near the Rhine River. So his full name means Rembrandt, son of Harmen, from the Rhine. Known for his self-portraits and biblical scenes, Rembrandt is considered to be one of the greatest painters in European history. Although he’s most famous for his 1642 painting The Night Watch, Rembrandt created hundreds of paintings, drawings, and etchings in his life.
