Rembrandt - The Holy Family With Angels Fine Art Print

Brandywine General Store

SKU: 31 Religious

An archival premium Quality art Print of The Holy Family with Angels by Rembrandt for sale by Brandywine General Store. The artist finished this oil on canvas in the year 1645 with the original size being 46 by 36 inches and now at the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia after being purchased by Catherine the Great in 1772. This painting glows with warmth of small details making this dramatic effect. A burst of divine light accompanies the Angels who invade the chamber to witness this scene of every day life by Mary and Joseph and the Baby Jesus. The tenderness of the young mother's movements blend in with the deep warm colors to provide the human aspect. Joseph is hard at work at his bench, the yoke in his hand could also signify that Christ would free the people of Israel from the yoke. Historians think the features of the baby are modeled after Titus, the son of Rembrandt and his late wife Saskia. Religious art print #31
