Rembrandt’s Son Titus in a Monk’s Habit, Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn, 1660

canvas, h 79.5cm × w 67.7cm. More details

Rembrandt portrayed his son Titus with downcast eyes and wearing a Franciscan habit. The rules of this monastic order prescribed a life of poverty and humility. Indicative of this are the coarse robe and the introspective gaze on the boy’s gaunt face, on which Rembrandt has focussed all his attention. The surroundings, with rocks and bushes, are only summarily suggested.
