21 Jun

In late 1631, moving permanently to Amsterdam, Rembrandt established his studio in the art dealer Hendrick van Uylenburgh’s premises. Their joint business venture capitalized on the growing market for portraits and history paintings by Dutch artists. Rembrandt immediately became the most prominent painter of portraits, introducing greater subtlety, presence and animation to the genre, as well as innovative group portraits. Many students came to the van Uylenburgh “academy” to be trained in Rembrandt’s manner of painting, including Jacob Backer, Govaert Flinck and Ferdinand Bol. In 1634 Rembrandt married van Uylenburgh’s niece, Saskia van Uylenburgh.

For believers, owning sacred religious art, paintings is a way of enhancing, embracing, and strengthening faith. Religious paintings take many forms and have been a popular way of connecting with faith for thousands of years. In fact, religious images were painted by many of the renowned artists of the Renaissance period. Despite its age, religious themed artwork does not look dated. Instead, images representing Christ, angels, and scenes from the Old Testament are iconic images that still manage to enrapture and thrill modern art lovers.
