Rembrandt van Rijn Art

Dutch, 1606-1669
Rembrandt was the most influential 17th Century Dutch painter. After years of early success as a portrait painter, his life was beset by financial hardship and personal tragedy. He continued to paint portraits and develop etchings. Rembrandt's portraits of his contemporaries, self-portraits and illustrations of scenes from the Bible are regarded as his greatest creative triumphs. His self-portraits form a unique and intimate autobiography, in which the artist surveyed himself without vanity and with the utmost sincerity. Like many artists of the Dutch Golden Age, such as Jan Vermeer of Delft, Rembrandt was also an avid art collector and dealer. Rembrandt never went abroad, but he was considerably influenced by the work of the Italian masters and Netherlandish artists who had studied in Italy, like Pieter Lastman, the Utrecht Caravaggists, Flemish Baroque, and Peter Paul Rubens. Rembrandt's foremost contribution in the history of printmaking was his transformation of the etching process from a relatively new reproductive technique into a true art form, along with Jacques Callot. His reputation as the greatest etcher in the history of the medium was established in his lifetime and never questioned since. Few of his paintings left the Dutch Republic while he lived, but his prints were circulated throughout Europe, and his wider reputation was initially based on them alone.

Rembrandt Van Rijn The Artist’s Mother 1631 Etching Millenium Edition Framed
By Rembrandt van Rijn
Located in Keego Harbor, MI
An emotional etching on Ingres d’Arches off-white laid paper paper titled “The Artist’s Mother with Her Hand on Her Chest” by Rembrandt Van Rijn. Created in 1631. A 20th/21st Century impression printed by Marjorie Van Dyke. From the “Millenium” edition limited to 2500 examples. In this poignant portrait, Rembrandt captures his mother’s careworn face and tender expression as she is found in contemplation, her eyes cast downward. The position of her hand upon her chest suggests the importance of her thoughts and closeness to her heart. The darkly etched dress and veil heighten the drama of the image, and the curve of the veil around and over her face creates an angelic effect, reinforced by the light behind. In 1589, Rembrandt’s mother...

The Death of the Virgin - Original Etching by Rembrandt - 1639
By Rembrandt van Rijn
Located in Roma, IT
The Death of the Virgin is an etching with drypoint tweaks on wire rod double filigree paper, realized in 1639 by Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (Leiden, 1606 - Amsterdam, 1669). Probable specimen of III state on three (according to White & Boon), IV on four (following Biörklund-Barnard). Signature and date on plate on the lower left corner “Rembrandt f. 1639". The paper has a cluster watermark with symmetrical elements in the center (similar to Ash Grapes B.a.) and a second watermark written on 4 lines (perhaps identifiable with Ash Words C.a.). Superb specimen on doubly watermarked paper: the first on four lines dating back to around 1764 and widely diffused in Normandy and Germany; the second, clustered, traced back to the second decade of the 17th century. Sheet characterized by a legible and appreciable impression for the chiaroscuro; good conditions of conservation, even though some thinning is reported, in particular along the left margin and on the lower left corner, together with small gaps visible on the back and a superficial deposit of particles. Reference: Gersaint 1751, p. 71, n. 97; Bartsch 99; Hind 1924, n. 161; Biörklund-Barnard 1957, n. 39, IV; New Hollstein (Dutch & Flemish), n. 173 (Rembrandt); Hinterding et al. 2000 n. 32.III; White & Boon 1969, n. 99.III. One of the most interesting works with a religious subject by the great old master, for both the compositional freedom and the technical expertise. We do not know who the customer was; it could have been a Catholic client, but this hypothesis seems to be at least doubtful precisely because of the peculiarity with which the episode is narrated. Certainly, this artwork is linked to a precise market request, given its size - this is the second largest incision of the artist - and the commitment to such an important work. A more detailed description of this religious event is described particularly well in the Legenda Aurea by Jacopo da Varagine, a guiding text in the Middle Ages for all the artists who wanted to portray the Death of the Virgin: an angel appeared to Mary announcing her imminent death. It is told that the Apostles, dispersed in the four corners of the world to proclaim the Gospel, were miraculously transported to Mount Zion to be near them. Disagreeing with other exegetes, Hinterding claims that Rembrandt knew the Legenda but was inspired by it in an original way, combining two moments in a single choral scene. Indeed, the scene depicted by the artist takes place in the bedroom of the Virgin: the angel appears at the top, accompanied by the cherubs, while the Apostles gather around her bed. For this marvelous etching, in addition to the aforementioned text by the Dominican friar da Varagine, Rembrandt certainly also looked at two fundamental works (to understand the genesis of the composition): the Death of the Virgin by Albrecht Dürer, from the silographic series of the Life of the Virgin, of which he owned a specimen, perhaps bought at auction in 1638, and a stained glass window designed by Dirck Pietersz Crabeth (1501-1574), in the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam. From Crabeth, he took the figure in the foreground that is reading the Holy Scriptures, perhaps the personification of the Church, and the canopy bed that stands out at the center of the scene. The young man with long hair described on the right, perhaps San Giovanni Evangelista, is instead a quotation from the Adoration of the Magi (1513) by Lucas Van Leyden, an artist much appreciated by Rembrandt. In Rembrandt's version of Mary's farewell, there are not only the Apostles: around her there are men and women, young and old, someone, intrigued, peeks out from behind the bed or a curtain, in the background, on the right, others pray kneeling...
