1. A very fine, rich, well printed early impression of the 4th state (of six) of this work, one of Rembrandt’s major portraits. With considerable burr. On paper with a Double-Headed Eagle watermark (Ash & Fletcher, Watermarks in Rembrandt’s Prints, National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, 1998, no. 15-C.a.). The same watermark is found on the fourth state impression of this work at the Art Institute of Chicago (Clarence Buckingham Collection, acquired in 1938 no. 1814) as well as on impressions of this work at the British Museum and the Rijksmuseum.

2. Rembrandt etched this portrait in 1635, when Uytenbogaert was seventy-eight years old. It is to be noted that Rembrandt had painted Uytenbogaert’s portrait two years earlier (Rijksmuseum).

3. An interesting description of Uytenbogaert is presented by Hinterding (Ger Luijten and Martin Royalton-Kisch, Rembrandt The Printmaker Erik Hinterding, British Museum Press, 2000, p. 144):

The man portrayed is the preacher Johannes Uytenbogaert or Wtenbogaert (1557-1644), a distinguished and highly influential figure in his day. Shown at the age of seventy-eight, he was formerly Frederik Hendrik of Orange’s tutor, and minister at the court of Prince Maurits. He became a leading spokesman for and later the leader of the Remonstrants, a liberal movement in the Calvinist Church in opposition to the Counter-Remonstrants. An outspoken champion of religious tolerance, Uytenbogaert played a prominent role in the controversy between the two factions over the question of divine predestination. This theological dispute flared into a nationwide political struggle, reaching such proportions that Uytenbogaert was forced to flee the country in 1618, after which he was officially banished. He returned in secret in 1626 once the situation had calmed down, and moved back into his old home in The Hague in 1629.
