Rembrandt van Rijn - Man in Oriental Costume

Regular price £9.95

Rembrandt van Rijn's Man in Oriental Costume was created in 1635. He probably painted this work after moving to Amsterdam from his hometown of Leiden, and wanted to appeal to the city's discerning collectors. Images of imaginary Persian or Ottoman princes were popular at the time, partly because of new trade contacts between the Dutch Republic and the Middle East, which brought international visitors to Amsterdam.
