Portrait of a Woman

Rembrandt (Rembrandt van Rijn) Dutch

Not on view

The sitter’s identity is unknown, as in many Rembrandt portraits of the 1630s. During that decade in Amsterdam the painter was pressed with many portrait commissions, which he handled with the occasional use of assistants and different degrees of quality in his own work. Some critics detect the hand of a collaborator in this painting, but the strong modeling of the face, delicate drawing of the cap, and immediacy of the expression are typical of Rembrandt himself.
