Rembrandt, the Bankrupt

posted by Bob Lawless

Among the list of famous persons who have declared bankruptcy is Rembrandt van Rijn. A book by Washington University's Paul Crenshaw, Rembrandt's Bankruptcy, explores the reasons and effects of Rembrandt's financial troubles. The book was first published in February 2006, but it just came to my attention today. Thus, I have not had a chance to read it, but the comments are open for those who have and want to offer their own thumbnail review.

As with any literary or other of my posts that even remotely have a touch of the fine arts, thanks to Buce over at Underbelly for the tip.

After completing the information there, please also send an e-mail to Professor Lawless ([email protected]) with a short description of your professional connection to bankruptcy.
