Rembrandt, the finest of the Dutch painters and one of the greatest artists of all time, was born in Leyden. The son of a prosperous miller, young Rembrandt studied painting after attending Latin school. He first attended school in Leyden and then in Amsterdam under Peter Lastman, from whom he learned chiaroscuro-the dramatic use of light and shadow-as his teacher had learned in Italy from Caravaggio. In 1631, Rembrandt moved to Amsterdam, where he remained permanently.
