Portraits (1640s)
by REMBRANDT

Around 1640 Rembrandt painted a number of portraits of distinguished, withdrawn figures, all bathed in subdued light.

Rembrandt's portrait commissions from the regent class evaporated into thin air after 1640. However, this was not the case with merchants, manufacturers, tradesmen and professionals. The rate at which Rembrandt painted and etched portraits of people in this category never deviated after 1636.
