Rembrandt Van Rijn Bust of a Man 1630 Etching Millenium Edition Framed

Sale price$1,500.00


A regal etching on Ingres d’Arches off-white laid paper paper titled “Bust of a Man Wearing a High Cap” by Rembrandt Van Rijn. Created in 1630. A 20th/21st Century impression printed by Marjorie Van Dyke. From the “Millenium” edition limited to 2500 examples. Art historians believe that this etching depicts Rembrandt’s father, although no conclusive evidence exists that supports this belief. Rembrandt’s father, Harmen Gerritszoon van Rijn, was a miller and owned a half-interest in a windmill called “De Rijn.” In this delicate and facile portrait, Rembrandt depicts a man with a resolute jaw, earnest eyes, and a focused and intent expression, all qualities one could easily associate with the wisdom and fortitude of one’s father. The exotic and ornate dress of the sitter—wearing a turban and coat—may suggest Rembrandt’s desire to portray his father as a man of importance. His father died the same year this etching was completed. From a private collection, originally purchased from Park West Gallery in 2005. Gallery tag on verso. Dimensions: 22”h x 21.5”w x 1.5”d (framed). In very good condition. Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669) usually simply known as Rembrandt, was a Dutch Golden Age painter, printmaker, and draughtsman. An innovative and prolific master in three media, he is generally considered one of the greatest visual artists in the history of art. Rembrandt’s reputation as the greatest etcher in the history of the medium was established in his lifetime.
