Old Woman Cutting Her Nails - Rembrandt
This, the most remarkable of all the pictures in North the room, is an example of Rembrandt's late time wall (the date, somewhat abraded, is 1658).
The Lady With A Pink - Rembrandt
This painting and Number 4, the so-called Man with a Magnifying-glass, are companion pieces. On the authority of Dr. Valentiner, who has made conspicuously successful studies in the matter of the identification of the portraits of the painter's family, they represent Magdalena van Loo and her husband, Titus, the son of Rembrandt, and were painted soon after their marriage in 1668.
Pilate Washing His Hands - Rembrandt
The Pilate of the Altman Collection sets forth the tragedy of old age no longer willing or able to cope with forces stronger than itself. Outside the place where Pilate sits is the clamoring populace, watching him, clashing its weapons, determined not to be balked of its prey.
The Man With A Magnifying Glass - Rembrandt
As has been said in the note on Number 2, The Lady with a Pink, of which it is the companion picture, this work is believed by Dr. Valentiner to represent Titus, the son of Rembrandt, and to have been painted in 1668.
An Old Woman In An Arm Chair - Rembrandt
This is the earliest of the five pictures on this wall. It is dated 1635. The subject was not promising for a portrait, a plain old lady who would sit upright in her chair in the attitude of a peasant who poses for the village photographer, and who insisted on having herself shown with a pleasant expression.
The Artist's Son Titus - Rembrandt
The picture is dated 1655, at which time the boy west was fourteen. He has a winning, rather delicate wall face with a vague, dreamy expression. He is dressed up for the portrait, as Rembrandt was so fond of doing. He has earrings, a wide-brimmed hat with a feather, and brownish-red doublet over a plaited shirt.
