'Rembrandt made a mess of his legal and financial life' is but one of the claims made in a new book by the Dutch Emeritus Professor of Private Law Bob Wessels. I'm sure this fact won't be too surprising to many readers of AHN.

The University of Leiden have published a rather interesting interview with Wessels which explains more about his research into Rembrandt's legal and financial dealings. The book also claims that ‘Rembrandt was a stubborn, socially inept shopaholic.'

Rembrandt's Money is out this month.
