This is the first of a series of monographs having to do with the work of great painters. It is interesting that the most recent publication by Hendrik Van Loon should concern the same study. Dr. De Lint has collected from the paintings of Rembrandt all those of medical interest and has associated with excellent reproductions a discussion of the significance of these paintings. The famous anatomy lesson and lecture are fully elucidated, but there are also pictures covering almost every field of medicine. They reveal the painter as a great thinker and psychologist. The work would certainly be a desirable gift for any physician or artist.
