Historical Description of this artwork


Reverent and deferential, this masterful large scale Rembrandt The Death of the Virgin, 1639 is a respectful tribute to the Virgin Mother at her moment of death. With gentle attendants at her side, and welcoming angels overhead, Rembrandt creates a sweeping sense of emotion as our eyes map the travel of the Virgin from her death bed into Heaven. The attention to detail in this masterpiece is astounding—from the intricate etching of facial expressions to the details in the large manuscript in the lower left, these intimate details provide a sense of deep connection between images in the work and us as viewers. A true work of unparalleled talent, The Death of the Virgin articulates Rembrandt’s masterful ability as both artist and narrator—culminating in a beautiful and unique interpretation of this somber and delicate moment.
