Lot 30

Description

After Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn, 
Dutch 1606-1669- 

Cornelis Claesz. Anslo, preacher; 

etching on laid paper, with watermark 'GER..', 16.5 x 16 cm. (unframed). 

Provenance: 
Private Collection, UK (by descent). 

Note: 
The present work appears to be a 19th-century version of Rembrandt's etching, the first state of which was originally printed in 1641. It depicts Cornelis Claesz. Anslo (1592-1646), a wealthy Amsterdam merchant and influential Mennonite preacher. Rembrandt makes reference to Anslo's oratory through his outstretched hand, gesticulating towards an open Bible before him as he, presumably, explains a passage. 

In the same year as the original print was made, Rembrandt painted a portrait of Anslo and his wife, which similarly depicts Anslo in the act of preaching (Gemäldegalerie, Berlin [828L]). These works mark an effective exploration of the capacity of the artist to convey the power of the spoken word through visual media.
