a well inked impression of New Hollstein's second state (of three) with the faint scratch on David's cloak, on cream laid paper without watermark, plate 141 x 91mm (5 5/8 x 3 5/8 in), sheet 155 x 102mm (6 1/8 x 4 in) (unframed)

Rembrandt van Rijn
Dutch, 1606–1669
Follow

A prolific painter, draftsman, and etcher, Rembrandt van Rijn is considered the greatest artist of Holland's Golden Age. He worked from direct observation, and despite the evolution of his style over the course of his career, Rembrandt’s compelling descriptions of light, space, atmosphere, modeling, texture, and human affect are the result of intense perceptual study. A prominent portraitist, Rembrandt is most famous for The Night Watch (1642), a monumental painting of militia guards that features Rembrandt’s distinctive use of chiaroscuro.
