Historical Description of this artwork


Full of dark black intricately etched lines, Rembrandt Rembrandt’’s Mother in Widow’s Dress and Black Gloves, 1632 is an intimate look at the artist’s mother in a solemn moment. Highly textured with a multitude of cross-hatched lines, this work entices the viewer to inspect the work closely to see all of the complex details within the figure.

Seated in nearly full profile, the artist’s mother appears in a state of calm reflection. This work portrays her dressed in clothes of mourning for the loss of her husband, the dark black widows dress is in strong contrast with the background as well as the black gloves on her hands. Leaving no minute detail unrealized, the small undulating ruffles and the fur-like trimming of the sleeves and collar in this figure are intricately rendered. Though a deep, dark black impression, the separate features of the figure and chair are masterfully composed and visually stand out with varied textures and amounts of hatched lines.

Created c. 1632, this work is Nowell-Usticke State III (of III). Signed by Rembrandt in the plate in the upper left hand corner, this work is stated by Nowell-Usticke to be an uncommon print with approximately 125-225 known impressions. This work is accepted by some, including Nowell-Usticke, and rejected by others including Biörklund.
