Regular price $725.00 USD
Regular price Sale price $725.00 USD

Portrait of twenty-year-old Marten Soolmans standing full-length on a checkered tile floor in an undefined space. Marten and Oopjen are the only couple Rembrandt painted lifesize, standing and full-length. Marten was the son of a wealthy Flemish immigrant who owned a successful sugar refinery in Amsterdam. Attired in a sumptuous costume with expensive lace and enormous rosettes on his shoes, he poses self-assuredly for Rembrandt. They probably knew one another from Leiden, where Marten had studied law.
