Rembrandt: 'Portrait of Jacob Trip'
This painting is part of the group: Portraits of Jacob Trip and his Wife Margaretha de Geer

This impressive portrait, dating from the last decade of Rembrandt's life, depicts the extremely wealthy Dordrecht merchant Jacob Trip.

The portrait dates from the year of Jacob's death; nightcap, dressing gown and walking stick suggest frailty. The portrait has less vitality than the companion portrait of his wife, Margaretha de Geer, and it is conceivable that it was painted posthumously.
