Rembrandt, Portrait of the Artist at His Easel 1660 Rembrandt Van Rijn, Dutch, Is considered one of the greatest European portrait painters of all time Rembrandt is known for his highly realistic, well trained style. Rembrandt is especially known for his self portraits. A letter published in 2004 by Margaret S. Livingstone, professor of neurobiology at Harvard Medical School, suggests that Rembrandt, whose eyes failed to align correctly, suffered from stereo blindness. This conclusion was made after studying 36 of Rembrandt's self-portraits. Because he could not form a normal binocular vision, his brain automatically switched to one eye for many visual tasks. This disability could have helped him to flatten images he saw, and then put it onto the two-dimensional canvas. Livingstone theorized that this was an advantage for the painter: "Art teachers often instruct students to close one eye in order to flatten what they see. Therefore, stereo blindness might not be a handicapand might even be an assetfor some artists." 6. Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890).
