    Some of the most notable and most well known include: Raising of the Cross and The Rape of the Daughters of Leucippus He repeats the story that Rembrandt took Geertje Dircx as a mistress when she was looking after his son following his wife's death, and later had her committed to a house of correction, claiming she was insane -- an act of ''great moral ugliness,'' Schama says, following the view expressed years ago by the Rembrandt specialist Gary Schwartz. The composition of the central panel presents the flurry of action and emotion surrounding the body of Christ, shown with diagonal foreshortening, amid a scene of dynamic tension. A Baroque attention to detail is evident in the garments, jewelry, and accessories such as the crisp lace, rich glistening fabrics, the glint of the metal of the sword hilt, hatband, and jewels.
