Historical Description of this artwork


Arguably one of the greatest master printers and portrait makers of this period, Rembrandt is able to delve into the very personality and mannerisms of his various subjects.  Jan Lutma, The Goldsmith, 1656 is seen with a slight sliver of a smile, resting comfortably in his goldsmith’s chair with a vaguely humorous, relaxed expression.  Light streams in from the window in the background, allowing our subject to be illuminated from behind giving an illusion of depth and texture.

According to Rembrandt scholar, K.G. Boon:

Portraits…are undisputed high points in Rembrandt’s graphic work.  With each one Rembrandt so immersed himself in his subject’s pursuits that in addition to a portrait he also created a type of human being.  With regard to Jan Lutma, the old goldsmith, Rembrandt’s typification of the artist is most pronounced in the head with its mild, brooding – and not a little     sardonic – glance.

Created in 1656, this etching, engraving and drypoint is signed in the plate by Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (Leiden, 1606- Amsterdam, 1669) in the upper center (upper left of the window) ‘Rembrandt | 1656’.  Also featuring an inscription in the plate to the right of Lutma’s left elbow: ‘Joannes Lutma Aurifecx | Natus Groningae,’ with address of Jan Lutma’s son Francois (1626-1664) engraved lower right: ‘F Lutma Ex.’ Likely a lifetime impression, this work is a New Hollstein Dutch State III of V, Nowell-Usticke State II (of VI), Biörklund State II (of III), Hind State II (of III), White & Boon II (of III).
