Geen gouden aureool, geen bebloede doornenkrans. Christus is hier afgebeeld als een gewone man. Het portret werd in 1655 geschilderd door Rembrandt, óf onder diens toeziend oog. Het model is waarschijnlijk een joodse man uit Rembrandts buurt, vlakbij de Oude Kerk. Vanaf vandaag tot einde van het jaar is dit bijzondere schilderij te zien in onze Collegekamer. Kom je kijken? Ticket via link in bio.

There's no golden halo, nor a bloody crown of thorns. Christ is painted here as an ordinary man. Rembrandt or one of his disciples painted the portrait in 1655. The model is most probably a Jewish man from Rembrandt's neighborhood near the Oude Kerk. You can see this special painting in our Collegekamer from today till the end of the year. Will you come by? Ticket via link in bio.

#rembrandtnightwatch on instagram

You best believe I was up bright and early and at the Rijksmuseum when the doors opened in order to get a good look at Rembrandts Night Watch, without all the crowds!
.
The Night Watch is the peak of Dutch Golden Age painting (completed in 1642) and is a group portrait of a militia company. It’s real title is ‘Militia Company of District II under the Command of Captain Frans Banninck Cocq, also known as The Shooting Company of Frans Banning Cocq and Willem van Ruytenburch’ - but that’s a bit of a mouthful, so it was nicknamed Night Watch in the 18th c as the varnish had darkened over time, leading people to think it was a night scene. The dark varnish was removed in the 1940s
