Follower of REMBRANDT , 1606 - 1669

An Old Man in an Armchair


Date: 1650s
Medium: Oil on canvas
Dimensions: 111 x 88 cm
Acquisition credit: Bought, 1957

An elderly man is portrayed seated, wearing a fur robe, and gazing downwards in contemplation. The composition and technique are reminiscent of Venetian portraiture, particularly that of Tintoretto. At the time of purchase in 1957, this picture was thought to be a late Rembrandt but it has now been reattributed to an unknown follower of Rembrandt from the late 17th or early 18th century. The head and hands in particular lack Rembrandt's finesse. Such lack of coherence is not found in Rembrandt's autograph portraits of the early 1650s, which is an outstanding period of his portraiture.
