Onno Blom in Hatchards

Hatchards hosts an illustrated talk and discussion with Onno Blom.

Onno Blom’s new biography Young Rembrandt, tells the story of the artist’s early years, as the miller’s son from a provincial town rose to become the greatest artist in the world.

To mark the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt, Blom digs deep into his birthplace of Leiden, immersing himself in the world, the country, the city and the house in which the artist was born in 1606. This is how Rembrandt became Rembrandt: the ultimate portrait of the artist as a young man.
