A copy after the original etching by Harmensz van Rijn Rembrandt (Leiden, 1606 - Amsterdam, 1669), this piece depicts a scene of everyday life. The hog was an important household commodity during Rembrandt's time, and the artist here expresses the value of the hog by placing it front and center with detailed shading, calmly awaiting its fate as a man in the background sharpens his knife.

The hog - a staple of every Dutch household during Rembrandt's time of the 17th century. It meant sustenance for any family who owned one and was often highly bartered and traded as part of everyday life. Rembrandt has depicted our Hog lying peacefully before a family of onlookers, presumably its owners. In the background, a faintly etched man appears to be sharpening his tools atop a table - holding the fate of the hog in his hands. Interestingly, a more detailed figure clutching a small pouch or sack appears to be fleeing the scene just behind the hog's back.
This piece is a copy created after an original etching by Harmensz van Rijn
Rembrandt (Leiden, 1606 - Amsterdam, 1669) by a student or follower of Rembrandt.

La biographie de The School of Rembrandt
Harmensz van Rijn Rembrandt's (Leiden, 1606 - Amsterdam, 1669) school in Amsterdam was one of the busiest art enterprises of the 17th century. As a talented and popular teacher with more than 50 documented students, Rembrandt created not only a name for himself but for his school as well. His name lives on through his own vast artistic oeuvre and through the works that his students created that greatly resemble his artistic style. From paintings to drawings to etchings, his students explored a variety of artistic mediums, creating works of great artistic merit.
Drawing, in particular, played a crucial role in Rembrandt's teaching methods. Rembrandt would create drawings for his students to imitate, and he and his pupils would sketch the same models and landscapes side by the side. As a result of these immersive training methods, Rembrandt's drawings and those of his students retain many stylistic similarities.
Works by the School of Rembrandt display traits that define Rembrandt's artistic style: the delicate handling of line, rendering of expressions and gestures, and description of light. Rembrandt's works display an active use of light and shadow on his figures creating a dramatic chiaroscuro effect while his subjects appear to come to life with their remarkably detailed and human expressions. His students learned such methods from him and expertly applied them to their own works.
Amongst some of Rembrandt's more notable students are Ferdinand Bol (1616 -1680), Gerrit Dou (1613-1675), Carel Fabritius (1622 - 1654), Govert Flinck (1615 - 1660), and Samuel van Hoogstraten (1627 - 1678).
