|Two men, vastly different in appearance, stand near each other. The figure to
the left appears confident and proud. Standing tall with his hands upon his
hips, he dons a regal outfit with a tall, plumed cap and fine garments cinched
at the waist with a belt. The artist utilizes fine, cross hatched lines to convey
this figure, who appears larger and thereby more important than his counterpart
on the right. The figure on the right appears young and uncertain. Conveyed
in loosely sketched lines with minimal shading, this figure gazes down towards
the ground. The viewer cannot be sure of the identity of these two men, contributing
an element of mystery and intrigue to this piece.
This uncatalogued original etching by a follower or student Harmensz van Rijn Rembrandt (Leiden, 1606 - Amsterdam, 1669) is printed on Oriental paper. This piece is signed and dated in the plate in the lower right 'Rembrandt 1633.'

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).
