Rembrandt

My college had this basement photo archive with light like this and a stone staircase. This painting reminds me of that room and combines two of my favourite elements, light and a spiral staircase.

The age and size of this tiny piece also fascinates me. I can’t help but wonder how it would look cleaned up. (Varnish on old painting become yellow with age).

Philosopher in meditation., 1632

Oil on panel, 29 × 33 cm
