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

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

Rembrandt’s son Titus was probably the model for this ‘portrait’ of a Franciscan monk. His downcast eyes lend him an air of quiet introspection. His serene, pale face stands out clearly against a backdrop of green and brown vegetation. Solitary retreat into nature for prayer and reflection was of great importance to Saint Francis and his order.
