He was a Dutch painter and etcher. He is generally considered one of the greatest painters and printmakers in European art and the most important in Dutch history.
He uses a lot of “dirty” and scruffy texture which makes his paintings look very rough and messy but still professional at the same time . His works focus mostly only portraits of people and sometimes the occasional action scenes of battles. In his works, he uses a lot of browns, yellows, oranges and overall warm colours on dark or almost rusty looking backgrounds.
