INFORMATION ABOUT THE PAINTING AND THE PAINTER
Man in oriental dress - Rembrandt van Rijn - 1635
Another sublime portrait of Rembrandt van Rijn. Sublime through the use of light, dark and light. The signature of Master Rembrandt. A ray of light falls on the turban and attracts all attention. Yet there is enough to see in the details of the clothing, in the gold and in the background. These so-called Turkish tronies were popular in the 17th century.
The painter Rembrandt van Rijn, 1606-1669
Rembrandt van Rijn, born in Leiden on 15 July 1606 in the Weddesteeg, the ninth son of Gerritsz van Rijn and Neeltgen Willemsdr. Van Zuytbrouck, is one of the most famous painters and etchers in European art. Rembrandt was the most important Dutch master of the 17th century. In total, he painted more than 300 paintings, 300 etchings and 2000 drawings.
Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn called himself primarily a portrait and history painter. He made one hundred painted and twenty etched self-portraits, which give a clear picture of his appearance and an idea of his feelings. Besides his son Titus van Rijn and his wife Saskia van Uylenburgh, his housekeepers and friends Geertje Dircx and Hendrickje Stoffels appear in his paintings as modellers of mythological and historical figures.
The work of Rembrandt van Rijn
In the year 1629, Rembrandt began to work with contrasts and became interested in light. After 1640, a shift is visible and in the fifties, the colours become richer and his brushstrokes come to the fore, they become stronger. The work of Rembrandt van Rijn has a Baroque style. Despite the fact that he never travelled to Italy, his works show a great influence of Caraggio. Sharp contrasts are visible in his work, and Rembrandt plays with light and dark areas in an almost extraordinary way, creating lively and dramatic scenes.
