What does the original description of the The Metropolitan Museum of Art write about the work of art made by Rembrandt van Rijn? (© - The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

This portrait most likely depicts the Amsterdam auctioneer Pieter Haringh (1609–1685), who once handled the sale of a famous portrait by the Italian Renaissance master Raphael that served Rembrandt as a source of inspiration. The sitter may have used the magnifying glass in his hand to evaluate paintings and other luxury goods circulating on the busy Amsterdam art market. Like his wife in the pendant portrait also on view here, the sitter wears a form of fancy dress that has little to do with Dutch clothing worn at the time.


In 1660 Rembrandt van Rijn painted the artpiece "Man with a Magnifying Glass". The original version was made with the exact dimensions: 36 x 29 1/4 in (91,4 x 74,3 cm).

What is more, the piece of art belongs to the digital art collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which is one of the world's largest and finest art museums, which includes more than two million works of art spanning five thousand years of world culture, from prehistory to the present and from every part of the globe..
