In this beautifully balanced composition, the artist depicts four cloaked women with their faces partially hidden in shadow. The four women are stacked vertically in a triangular shape. Though placed near each other, each woman appears unaware of those around her, as if absorbed in her own thoughts. Each figure appears as an individual with unique facial features and slightly varied garments. These women are heavily covered in cloth and reveal only portions of their faces. This adds an air of mystery to this uncatalogued work, for the viewer cannot be sure who these women are or why the artist chose to portray them together in a single composition.
This uncatalogued original etching by a 17th century follower or student of Harmensz van Rijn Rembrandt (Leiden, 1606 - Amsterdam, 1669) is signed and dated in the plate in the upper right 'Rembrandt f. 1639.'

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).
