Each year numerous new publications about Rembrandt come onto the market and 1999 was no exception. It was a good Rembrandt year, particularly since two Rembrandt exhibitions were mounted in the Netherlands: one at the Mauritshuis in The Hague, where the exhibition of self-portraits (previously on show at the National Gallery in London) attracted 200,000 visitors, and another at the Rembrandthuis in Amsterdam about Rembrandt's art collection, which more than 50,000 people came to see. Research into Rembrandt and his work continues, and so the books keep on coming. Reviews of: Simon Schama, Rembrandt's Eyes. Harmondsworth: Allen Lane / The Penguin Press, 1999; Christopher White and Quentin Buvelot (ed.), Rembrandt by Himself . Zwolle: Waanders; Bob van den Boogert (ed.): Rembrandt's Treasures.
