Historical Description of this artwork


Seated at his study, an open book in front of him, Rembrandt Jan Cornelis Sylvius, 1633 appears as a wise scholar.  Intricate lines convey his facial characteristics; his creased brow, long beard, and tired eyes show his age. Rembrandt utilizes delicate, cross-hatched lines to contribute a sense of depth and perspective within the work. This is particularly notable in the archway behind the subject’s shoulder; the subject is clearly seated within an architectural structure with multiple rooms. White & Boon identify the sitter as a cousin by marriage and guardian to Saskia, Rembrandt’s wife (p. 121).  White and Boon state, “After several country appointments, he [Jan Cornelis Sylvius] settled in Amsterdam in 1610, first officiating at the Gasthuiskjerk, and after 1622 in the Grote Kerk.  He died in 1638, at the age of 74’ (p. 121).

Created in 1633, this etching is signed and dated in the plate by Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (Leiden, 1606 – Amsterdam, 1669) in the center left ‘Rembrandt f. 1633.’ According to New Hollstein Dutch, this work is a state III (of III) impression, Nowell-Usticke III (of III) Biörklund State II (of II); White & Boon State II (of II); Hind State II (of II). According to Nowell-Usticke there are only approximately 125-225 known impressions of this work (Usticke 12, B. 266).
