OIL PAINTING: Portrait of an Old Man in Red, 1652
The calm, simple posture of this old man is in itself a sign of virtue. The facial features are noble and wise, and although the gnarled hands are still, we can feel that they tremble slightly. He has a kippah on his head, which indicates that he is a Jew. The storms of everyday life did not make this man complain about his fate, and spiritual calm was the reward for his patience. Rembrandt applied paint now in wide, thick strokes, using small translucent strokes of color, creating a varied texture. He skillfully used light and color to create an idea of ??the greatness of the human soul.
