The late Rembrandt

This week I visited the exhibition of ‘The late Rembrandt”, at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

Beautiful exhibition. For me the most impressive painting was this little painting of “Baadende vrouw” (bathing woman).

His fellow artists thought it was just a sketch, an unfinished painting.

The loose  brushstrokes of the white “dress” together with the delicate touch and de fine use of his glacis-strokes (thin layers of paint).
