Half-length Figure of a Man in an Oriental Dress
 (also known as 'Man in Oriental Costume')
905 x 1200 • 242 KB
In collaboration with workshop, possibly Govert Flinck (?) Painted when Rembrandt was in his late twenties and still strongly influenced by his teacher, Pieter Lastman. In the ease of brushwork, however, and depth of understanding, he already has passed far beyond his master’s accomplishments. The subject was most certainly a model whom the artist dressed up in sumptuous robes to provide an interesting study of texture and light.
