Rembrandt van Rijn was born in 1606 in the city of Leiden in a small millers house, right inside the city walls. The house was lived in by his family, his aunt owned the adjacent part and the backyard house was lived in by his grandmother. He lived in this place until about 1631 when he moved to Amsterdam to further his aspirations.
The house is build in the late 16th century in a, then new, style that would be characteristic for most city buildings in the following age. The Golden Age period of the Dutch economy that sparked the barque in which Rembrandt, and other painters would flourish.
Even simple workers houses like these often had a lot of well thought out design elements. Large plain windows were hard to make, so windows were often constructed from glass-in-lead frames put in wooden cross frames.
