A slightly later impression on laid paper without watermark, New Hollstein's seventh state (of nine), before later reworking, platemark 90 x 58 mm (3 1/2 x 2 1/4 in), sheet 98 x 67 mm (3 7/8 x 2 5/8 in), one carefully repaired tear within the tree, (unframed)

Dutch, 1606–1669

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.
