PRESS OPINIONS 



The Times, London. May 21. 1896, 

No such monument has ever been erected to any painter. To attempt such a 
work at all, three things were necessary — photography wiiii lis modern deve- 
lopment, enterprise, and a critical authority as complete as Dr. Hode's is. 

The Times, L(jndon, April 14, 1H97. 

\N'e commend this book as a wonderful result of modern reconstructive scho- 
larship, zeal, and enterprise. When the eight volumes are completed, they will 
bequite indispensable to every library which concerns itself witli the history of art. 

The 'Times, London, Jantiary 7, iScyi. 

The second of the eight volumes of this important and splendid work has 
just been issued by M. Sedelmeycr and is not less carefully executed than the 
lirsl 

'1 he volume as a whole, like its predecessor, represents all that scholarship, 
care, and money can do towaids the errection of a worthy monument to Rem- 
brandt's memory. 

The DjUv Chronicle, London. April 29. 1896. 

These photog^ravures are invaluable to students of Rembrandt and are excel- 
lently produced. The expense, research and energy of Mr. Sedelmeycr in making 
this collection must have been enormous. 

All we can say is that the subject is worthy of it. and happv will ilicy be who 
can become owners of the costly work, which is to be issued in eight volumes. 

Ill list raleJ London Xe)vs. April 25, 1896. 

The value and beauty of this collection, which exceeds anything before at- 
tempted, are beyond controversy. 

The Daily Teleij^raph, London. October 22, 189^). 

The work will be a veritable monument to the genius of the very greatest 
of all painters.

American Register, Paris, March 27, 1897. 

A magnficcnt work of art, at which no less a connoisseur than Mv. Charles 
Sedelmeyer, the well-known dealer and expert in art, in collaboration with Direc- 
tor Bode, has been working- for fully fifteen years, has at last been completed. It 
is the richly illustrated eJition in eight larg-e volumes of-' LXEuvre Complet de 
Rembrandt, " a veritable literary and artistic monument to the great Dutch mas- 
ter, all of whose works, scattered throug-hout the world, have here been reproduced 
in heliog-ravure, with full descriptive text. The first volume has made its appea- 
rance, and, asmig-ht well have been foreseen, does great credit to the enterprising- 
editor as well as to France. 

The Colleclur, New Yufk, Apiil i5, 1897. 

Nothing- has yet been done, either in honour of any sing-le artist or for the 
recording of his works, to even approach « The Complete Work of Rembrandt » 
which is published by M. Sedelmeyer, of Paris.... II comes in the shape of a fat 
folio, of the most sumptuous form of artistic embellishment and typography, and, 
entirely apart from its magnificence as an art work, is a book of reference no 
true collector can fail to appreciate. 

The Art Amateur, New Yofk, December, 1897. 

The Complete Work of Rembrandt, which Dr. Bode has spent fifteen years in 
preparing and of which Mr. Sedelmeyer has already issued the hrst two volumes 
in truly magnihcent style, will reproduce every known painting by the master, 
one hundred and tifty of them never before published. 

The Art Amateur, New York, Febfuaiw, 1898. 

The second volume of Dr. Bode'smonumental work, which has just been deli- 
vered to American subscribers, is even richer and more interesting than the first 
volume, as it reproduces the work of a more advanced period of the master. As 
compared with the most thorough of his predecessors. Dr. Bode is immensely 
more full and authoritative. Where he differs from them in regard to individual 
pictures, the layman will do well, as in most such cases, to pin his faith to the 
most recent authority. Dr. Bode has had many advantages for which Vosmaer or 
Michel might sigh in vain. His learning is disputed by no one; and there is 
throughout his work abundant evidence of a calm judgment and a disposition to 
examine carefully both sides of every open question. When he admits as genuine 
works of Rembrandt paintings which other critics have pronounced doubtful, he 
speaks with precision, while they express themselves in a hesitating manner, and 
seem ready to withdraw every opinion that they advance. The difference of 
manner is due, it is safe to say, to real knowledge on the one side and presump- 
tuous ignorance on the other. Many things have come to light since .Michel 
wrote his book — a great bool( for its day — and the whole mass of evidence, 
new and old, has been sifted and weighed with the greatest care by Dr. iiode. 
The hundreds of photogravures from the original paintings which illustrate his 
great work arc of the highest merit, and are as superior in qualify to the 
illustrations of former works on Rembrandt as they vastly outnumber them.
