Historical Description of this artwork
This work depicts the moment in which Joseph flees to Egypt with Mary and his infant son Jesus after learning about King Herod's cruel intent to kill all infants in the area. Though small in size, this piece is rich in detail. The artist utilizes intricate, detailed lines to convey the folds in Joseph and Mary's garments. The baby Jesus is barely visible, wrapped in cloth and wresting on Mary's lap. Joseph walks next to the donkey, leading his wife and child to safety. He hunches over as though weighed down by the weight of his problems. The family walks across a forest landscape, and the viewer gathers the impression that they are trying to blend in with their environment, traveling quietly yet quickly to Egypt and protection from harm.
This work is a copy in reverse by a student or follower of Rembrandt created after the original etching by Harmensz van Rijn Rembrandt (Leiden, 1606 – Amsterdam, 1669).

The School of Rembrandt Biography
Harmensz van Rijn Rembrandt’s (Leiden, 1606 – Amsterdam, 1669) school in Amsterdam was one of the busiest art enterprises of the 17th century. As a talented and popular teacher with more than 50 documented students, Rembrandt created not only a name for himself but for his school as well. His name lives on through his own vast artistic oeuvre and through the works that his students created that greatly resemble his artistic style. From paintings to drawings to etchings, his students explored a variety of artistic mediums, creating works of great artistic merit.
Drawing, in particular, played a crucial role in Rembrandt’s teaching methods. Rembrandt would create drawings for his students to imitate, and he and his pupils would sketch the same models and landscapes side by the side. As a result of these immersive training methods, Rembrandt’s drawings and those of his students retain many stylistic similarities.
Works by the School of Rembrandt display traits that define Rembrandt’s artistic style: the delicate handling of line, rendering of expressions and gestures, and description of light. Rembrandt’s works display an active use of light and shadow on his figures creating a dramatic chiaroscuro effect while his subjects appear to come to life with their remarkably detailed and human expressions. His students learned such methods from him and expertly applied them to their own works.
Amongst some of Rembrandt’s more notable students are Ferdinand Bol (1616 -1680), Gerrit Dou (1613-1675), Carel Fabritius (1622 – 1654), Govert Flinck (1615 – 1660), and Samuel van Hoogstraten (1627 – 1678).
