Portrait of a Man

about 1632, Artist: Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn



Portrait of a Man

In 1631, when he was 25, Rembrandt moved from Leiden to the Dutch capital, Amsterdam, which offered him greater opportunity to develop his potential in society and the world of art. There he became sought-after as a portraitist and had a large studio with numerous apprentices. Rembrandt’s portraiture is marked by great liveliness of expression and finely modulated lighting effects. The counterpart to this portrait of an unknown man is “Portrait of a Woman” (Inv. No. GG 409).
