Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669): ‘Joseph’s coat brought to Jacob’. (Etching and drypoint on chinese paper. Plate 10,7 x 8,1 cm.Trimmed in places to the platemark, glued tightly to the top corners. At the top left a small retouched defect. Mounting stripes on the back and pencil inscriptions (H3587) at the bottom, pushing through slightly. .) In this etching, Rembrandt focussed on the immediate news being conveyed to the devasted Jacob, who throws back his head and raises his hands in horror at the sight of the coat. One of the sons, probably Reuben, is acting up the story, while his brother Judah is calmer, feigning concern. His bulky purse betrays the truth behind the deception. Leah, his elderly mother, stands at the doorway, staring open-mouthed, and nervously draws her hands together. This impression is the second of only two states. New Hollstein 122 II (van II); Bartsch 38.
