The narrator of this novel, the son of publisher Blaeu, is fascinated by Rembrandt (1607-1669). He writes about his own life, but is mainly occupied with the preparations for a biography of Rembrandt. He meets his son Titus and daughter Cornelia and occasionally the man himself.
At the same time, he is making plans for his own life; a career, a love life, an identity other than just the-son-of.
Garnished with notes from the painter’s fictional diary.
Many famous persons make their appearance: Constantin and Christian Huygens, various painters, rabbi Menassah Ben Israël, Spinoza, the French philosopher Descartes.
