Description

Immortalised in many of his greatest works of portraiture, Hendrickje Stoffels was Rembrandt's common law wife - and it is through her eyes, in this beautifully realised and well-researched novel, that we are plunged into the midst of both a passionate affair and a turbulent era of Dutch history. With writing as careful and subtle as the master's paintings Rembrandt's Whore combines all the qualities of a naturalist tragedy, historical novel and exposition of 17th-century Dutch society. To listen to Hendrickje is to share Rembrandt's life.
