Rembrandt's Mirror

(2015)
A novel by

 
 
Rembrandt's Mirror explores the three women of Rembrandt's life and the towering passions of the artist seen through the eyes of his last,great love, Hendrickje.

Hendrickje, a girl from a strict Calvinist family, leaves her provincial home to find work as a housemaid. She enters Rembrandt's flourishing workshop five years after the death of the great artist's wife, an event that continues to haunt him.

It is a house full of secrets and desires, and Hendrickje soon witnesses a sexual encounter between Rembrandt and Geertje, his implacable housekeeper. She is shocked to the core by their intense carnality and yet, slowly, she is drawn to Rembrandt by the freshness with which he perceives the world and the special freedom he seems to possess.

Rembrandt is a man of dark corners, strange passions and a ruthlessness born from his need to put his art first. An involvement with him could be her ruin or her liberty.

    

"A vision of what it means to live, to love and to be mortal-its warmth, intensity and intimacy stays with me still." - Samantha Harvey
