Although they were affluent the couple had several setbacks in their personal life. Three of their children died shortly after birth. Only their fourth child, a son, Titus, who was born in , survived into adulthood. Saskia died in soon after Titus's birth, probably from tuberculosis. After her death he began an affair with Titus's nurse, a widow called Geertje Dircx. This ended in a lawsuit. Geertje claimed that Rembrandt had broken his promise to marry her, and demanded that the council force him to marry her.
The council did not go that far but Rembrandt was asked to pay her a lot of money. He then cooperated with Geertje's family to have her locked up in a 'spinhuis' house of correction in Gouda.
In the late s, she was succeeded as Rembrandt's mistress by the much younger Hendrickje Stoffels, who initially had also been Rembrandt's maidservant. In they had a daughter, Cornelia, bringing Hendrickje an official reproach from the Reformed church for "living in sin. Rembrandt lived beyond his means, buying many art pieces and especially prints often used in his paintings , and rarities, which probably caused his bankruptcy in He had to sell his house and move to a more modest accommodation on the Rozengracht.
Here, Hendrickje and Titus started an art shop to make ends meet. However, Rembrandt's fame did not wane in these years, since he received an important commision for a large history piece for the newly built city hall. Rembrandt outlived both Hendrickje and Titus. In the end, only his daughter Cornelia was at his side.
The bereaving death of his much beloved son took heavy toll on Rembrandt and soon after that he died October 4, in Amsterdam and was buried in an unmarked grave in the Westerkerk. Periods, themes, and styles It was during Rembrandt's Leiden period that Lastman's influence was most prominent. Paintings were rather small, but rich in details for example, in costumes and jewelry.
Themes were mostly religious and allegoric. During his early years in Amsterdam , Rembrandt used large canvases and strong tones and depicted dramatic scenes. Rembrandt painted many portraits in this period. Other paintings had biblical and mythological scenes. In the late , Rembrandt painted many landscapes and produced etchings about nature.
In this period, his landscapes were tormented by nature, showing trees taken down by a storm or ominous skies with dark clouds. Starting in about , his work became more sober, reflecting the family tragedies that he had suffered. Exuberance was replaced by deeply felt inner emotions. Biblical scenes were now derived more often from the New Testament instead of the Old Testament, as had been the case before.
Paintings became smaller again. The utter simplicity of the motif cannot explain the uncanny grandeur of this print, in which human activity and meteorological turbulence combine. Rain clouds loom at the left while the sun still shines bright on the right. The land is striped with sun and shadow as a result of the clouds' rapid movement.
Here and there we gradually discover the human inhabitants: barely visible lovers in the foliage in the right corner, a fisherman and his wife at the left, a cartful of peasants and an artist sketching, seen against the sky at the right, and dwellings, cattle, and more people stretching out toward the horizon at the left. Self-Portrait Leaning on a Stone Sill. Etch ing. ClevelandMuseum of Art. The activities depicted suggest that Rembrandt had a particular meaning in mind: the pleasures and virtues of the simple country life, sought out by residents of the city the primary audience for Dutch landscape -a theme also treated in contemporary Dutch literature.
The distant city in the print, the starting point of the artist's sketching excursion, reminds us of cares left behind. The cottages on the dike beyond the trees might be part of a country estate, built by a city-dweller to escape from his urban world. The large trees themselves have been interpreted in terms of Dutch moralizing emblems relating the strong tree that withstands storms to the virtuous person.
Because of his extensive use of drypoint, we can conclude that the audience for the print was relatively small.

It undoubtedly provided psychological refreshment to Rembrandt's Amsterdam patrons. The Three Trees exists in only one state, albeit in various inkings, so we cannot retrace with accuracy Rembrandt's procedure. Etching, drypoint, and burin work are thoroughly mingled in the lower right, for example, where the detail of the lovers is nearly lost.worlmareti.gq

The richness of Rembrandt's line is best observed in the landscape at the left of the print, where the sense of space depends almost entirely on subtle variations in the thickness of line, and in the sky, where ephemeral and decisive strokes combine with surface tone to suggest the moistureladen clouds and rain falling in sheets across part of the land. A graininess of uncertain origin also appears here and in the pastures beneath-did Rembrandt apply a sulphur tint a technique in which sulphur is used like aquatint or were the marks made manually on the plate?

Bavo is in the left distance. It is possible, Stone-Ferrier has suggested, that Thijsz. The linen-bleaching fields in the right middleground may suggest Thijsz. Rembrandt's use of curving lines to the right and left created a bowl-shaped composition that gives a sense of space expanding radially from an invisible central axis. Even though the geometric center of the horizon bears no special visual distinction, we are putted to it as if by magnetic force, and compelled to traverse the intervening fields and wooded areas.

Dutch Protestantism's emphasis on the Bible surely contributed to Rembrandt's constant probing of the Old and New Testaments, and to the market for his biblical prints.
Although he appears to have been officially connected to the Dutch Reformed or Calvinist Church, Gary Schwartz has recently stressed his -connections to the anti-Calvinist, or pro-Remonstrant, faction in Dutch society and politiCS. Most likely he was as independent in spiritual matters as in everything else. Clearly, however, his works plumb the central issues of Protestant thought.
As no other artist before or after him, he explored the nooks and crannies of Bible stories, his understanding deepening as his life went on, and he produced different versions of the same narrative in prints, drawings, and paintings. His fascination with certain biblical themes was often directly related to events in his own life. He had also experienced the loss of children, and so the story of Abraham's excruciating choice must have impressed him as particularly poignant. Not only was Abraham's pain personally meaningful to Rembrandt; it also embodied the Protestant emphasis on absolute faith in God, the covenant between God and mankind, and the power of God's grace.
