Offering a private view into the effort of an artist, Rembrandt accurately expresses the action of drawing in Man Drawing from a Cast, 1641. Beyond the man and his cast, the world retreats into rhythmic crosshatching, as a single candle illuminates this quiet scene. The limited light directs both our focus and the man’s, and subtle tonal shifts move across the lowly lit forms, rendering this scene with precision.  Through exquisitely executed contrast, Rembrandt’s superbly evokes the moment as not one of solitude, but of intimacy.

Created in 1641, this etching is according to the New Hollstein Dutch a state IV of VI, Nowell-Usticke State III (of V) impression; Biörklund State III (of III); White & Boon State III (of III); Hind State II (of II).
