Description of the painting by Rembrandt Harmenszoon Van Rijn “The Artist in the Workshop (1628)”


Rembrandt is one of the best artists of the "Golden Age". His canvases perfectly convey the whole variety of human emotions that open in a wide range. This painting is in storage at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. It painted a workshop where, presumably, the creator of the canvas could work. Perhaps the artist, whom the creator depicted, was his student Gerrit Dou. But many are sure that the creator of the canvas himself could be this person. Due to the fact that a person is standing in the back of the room, his face is quite difficult to see.

The moment is captured on the canvas when the master stands opposite the easel and, thinking about something, looks at his work. Perhaps in front of him is just a white canvas, on which nothing is yet depicted. The easel sits in the foreground, casting a shadow on the front door. It is as if he is blocking the creator from outside interference so that no one violates their tandem. The artist is dressed in an elegant blouse, his head is decorated with a wide-brimmed hat. It is as if he is at an important ceremony, contemplating something important. The hero of the picture is completely immersed in his thoughts related to his canvas.

Rembrandt's works are shrouded in secrets and riddles, bearing a certain mystical meaning and a serious message. Each of his paintings is a masterpiece that catches the eye and makes you freeze, considering the images and magnificent combinations of chiaroscuro. The inner world of his heroes is full of emotional experiences and anxieties, which are ideally transmitted with the help of a brush of genius. He emphasizes the individuality of each model, trying to express it through the drawing of facial expressions. According to the latest information, Harmenszoon Van Rijn Rembrandt left behind about eight hundred paintings. Of particular value are his late drawings, made with a pen made of cane.
