"The Syndics of the Clothmakers' Guild (The Staalmeesters) "
by Rembrandt (1606-1669)
Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn was born on 15th July, 1606, in Leiden. In 1625 the 19-year-old Rembrandt opened his own studio. In 1630, Rembrandt moved to Amsterdam. Wining acclaim with this work, Rembrandt became a fashionable portraitist in Amsterdam and started to receive many commissions for portraits of well-to-do patricians. In 1656, Rembrandt was declared bankrupt. His house and collections were auctioned; however, the sum thereby raised was insufficient to cover the debts.
