Bedecked in elaborate garb, Rembrandt Jan Uytenbogaert, Arminian Preacher, 1635 sits at his study, an open book in front of him. Rembrandt highlights his subject by illuminating him in light, creating a strong contrast against the dark, draped background. Intricate lines convey the feel of rich fabric, particularly on Uytenbogaert’s collar as well as the fur-lined coat thrown over his shoulders.
White & Boon state, “The sitter [Uytenbogaert] (1557-1644) was one of the most influential men in Holland up to his exile in 1618. As well as being chief spokesman of the Arminian Remonstrants at the time of their struggle against Calvinism, he was tutor to Frederick Henry. He returned to Holland in 1626, and later became a preacher of the Remonstrant Church in Amsterdam, but he never regained his former influence” (p. 132).

Created in 1635, this etching is signed and dated in the plate by Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (Leiden, 1606- Amsterdam, 1669) at the top ‘Rembrandt ft 1635’ and inscribed with a Latin quatrain by Hugo Grotius at the bottom. According to the New Hollstein Dutch, this work is a state VIII of IX, Nowell-Usticke State V (of VI) impression; Biörklund State VI (of VI); White & Boon State VI (of VI); Hind State VI (of VI); According to Nowell-Usticke there are approximately 225-500 known impressions of this work (Usticke 12, B. 279).
