About this artwork

Among his most moving portraits in any medium, Rembrandt’s depiction of friend and peer Jan Lutma suggests the intimacy of the two artists’s relationship through Lutma’s unassuming posture. Rembrandt showed him in a moment of contemplation, holding a sculptured figure in his right hand and presumably reflecting on the value of his work.
