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

This somber and imposing portrait, dating from the last decade of Rembrandt's life, depicts Margaretha de Geer, wife of the wealthy Dordrecht merchant Jacob Trip.

Margaretha is portrayed with great honesty. She confronts the viewer directly and her age shows clearly in her hands and face. Not untypical for a woman of her generation and age she wears old-fashioned clothes: the large ruff had been fashionable forty years earlier, in the 1620s.
