"Set in seventeenth-century Holland, an engrossing historical novel that brilliantly imagines the complex story behind one of Rembrandt's most famous paintings commissioned by a prominent Amsterdam medical guild, The Anatomical Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp was one of Rembrandt's first paintings to gain public notice. The novel opens on the morning of the medical dissection, and, as they prepare for that evening's big event, it follows several characters: a one-handed coat thief called Aris the Kid, who is awaiting his turn at the gallows; the twenty-six-year-old Dutch master himself, who feels a shade uneasy about this assignment; Jan Fetchet, a curio collector who also moonlights as an acquirer of medical cadavers; Flora, the woman pregnant with Aris's child, who hopes to collect her lover's body for a Christian burial before it's too late; Rene Descartes, who attended the dissection in the course of his quest to understand where the human soul resides; and Pia, a contemporary art historian who is examining the painting in the future. As the story builds to its dramatic and inevitable conclusion, the events that transpire throughout the day sway Rembrandt to change his initial composition in a fundamental way. Bringing to life the vivid world of Amsterdam in 1632, The Anatomy Lesson offers a rich slice of history and a textured story by a masterful young writer"--… (mere)

A single day in Amsterdam, 1632. The Surgeons’ Guild has commissioned a young artist named Rembrandt to paint Dr. Nicolaes Tulp as he performs a medical dissection. In the swirl of anticipation and intrigue surrounding the event, we meet an extraordinary constellation of men and women whose lives hinge, in some way, on Dr. Tulp’s anatomy lesson. There is Aris the Kid, the condemned coat thief whose body is to be used for the dissection; Flora, his pregnant lover; Jan Fetchet, the curio dealer who acquires corpses for the doctor’s work; the great René Descartes, who will attend the dissection in his quest to understand where the human soul resides; and the Dutch master himself, who feels a shade uneasy about this assignment.
As the story builds to its dramatic conclusion, circumstances conspire to produce a famous painting—and an immortal painter. Vividly rendered, masterfully written, The Anatomy Lesson is a story of mind and body, death and love—and redemptive power of art. ( )

This story is inspired by the painting, The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicholaes Tulp, by Rembrandt. Alternating voices take us through a single day in Amsterdam. We hear from a condemned thief who is scheduled for a public hanging, his betrothed who comes to Amsterdam to save him, Jan Fetchet who procures corpses for Dr. Tulp's lessons, Rene Descartes who will attend the dissection is search of the soul, and Rembrandt himself. It took me a bit to get into the rhythm of the book on audio, but I ended up fascinated by the threads of this story. ( )

This is a marvelously ambitious book, one in which Siegal has successfully taken us through the events of the day Rembrandt painted The Anatomy Lesson. Delving into the lives of each of the major players that took part in that momentous event, we get a taste of life in that time, the difficult choices, the hardships faced, the arbitrary meting out of punishment, life in prison. I loved the way the lives were woven in and out of one another's paths so that we see the connections, we have empathy for each sad role the players are drawn into. If you know the painting, the book brings another depth to the appreciation. If you do not know the painting, you will want to look it up and appreciate the lessons taught in this fine portrayal by Nina Siegal. I will definately look for other books by her! ( )

Somehow I enjoyed the idea of this book more than the actual reading of it. Intermingled stories of 6 people on a single day in Amsterdam in 1632, all intimately concerned with the public dissection of a criminal, simply doesnt gell. It remains basically 6 different stories, none of them strong enough to carry the narrative. While it is beautifully written, with an economy of prose and a real feeling for the world of 17th century bourgeois Amsterdam, unfortunately, its a plot in search of a story. I dont regret reading it, but I doubt it will stick in my memory for long. ( )
