    Dress has played a minor role in studies of Rembrandt's paintings, but he clearly delighted in the rendering of clothes and used clothing and jewellery to emphasize the character, religious affiliation or social staus of his portrait subjects, and to clarify the narrative or heighten drama in his history pieces. With over 150 illustrations, this volume shows how the study of dress can contribute in many and unexpected ways to our appreciation of Rembrandt's art.
