Acquisition of #Rembrandt’s ‘Standard Bearer’ by Dutch State has been officially agreed by the Rothschild heirs for €175 million.
The presumed self-portrait from 1636 probably served to convince the Amsterdam militiamen to order a ‘Schuttersstuk’; a prestigious commission for a 17th-century artist.
About four years after ‘Standard Bearer’, Rembrandt was indeed given such a commission: ‘The #Nightwatch’ (completed in 1642). As a prelude to that now world-famous group portrait, ‘Standard Bearer’ has an important place in Rembrandt's oeuvre.

This is "Portrait of Marten Looten" 1632
This is what I would call his more commercial style, or in other words, a much smother and cleaner style probably more in line with what his patrons would expect. Still every bit as impressive to me as his more experimental and personal work. . . . . . #brushwork #impasto #rembrandt #artzoom #baroque #oilpaint #oldmaster #masterpiece #portrait #art #painting #paintingart #artist #learntopaint #arttutorial...
