The Anatomy Lesson

(2014)
A novel by

 
 
Set in the Dutch Golden Age, an engrossing historical novel that brilliantly imagines the complex story behind one of Rembrandt's most famous paintings

THE ANATOMY LESSON takes us through a single day in Golden
Age Amsterdam as the city is preparing for the Winter Festival: executions,
followed by a public dissection, and then a banquet and torch parade through
town. Via several characters, ranging from a curio dealer who collects bodies
for the city's chief anatomist, to philosopher Rene Descartes, the novel tells
the imagined tale of how a common thief came to be the muse for the first
painting to which a 26-year old artist from Leiden attached his signature:
Rembrandt.
