|Josef and His Brothers, 1657, Gerbrand van den Eeckhout|
|Depending upon your criteria, some might prefer the|
van den Eeckhout version to that of Rembrandt.
Reproduction tones vary tremendously with this work.
(The one just above may be more accurate than the detail.)
|There's much more to be gained by misattributing a |
van den Eeckhout to Rembrandt than vice versa.
|Portrait of a Six-Year-Old Boy|
Holding an Apple, 1656,
Gerbrand van den Eeckhout.
(Not a self-portrait.)
|Both works are by van den Eeckhout, but the earlier, (1662)|
Christ in the Temple (directly above), bears the hallmark of
Rembrandt's palette while the later Presentation in the Temple (above-top) is more distinctively his own.
|Isaac Blessing Jacob, 1642, Gerbrand van de Eeckhout.|
|Jacob's Dream, 1642, Gerbrand van den Eeckhout|
|Now that you're an expert, can you tell the difference (without going to Google)?|
Is this a Rembrandt or a van den Eeckhout?
(Answer tomorrow--just above)
|This sad looking mongrel is |
definitely by van den Eeckhout.
