The lighting! Those cast shadows of the leaded window are divine! Lovely.

By discovering this work, I wanted to re-examine “the philosopher” of Rembrandt. The light comes, certainly of the window, and of the hearth but in more there is a light which emanates from painting. it is rather unreal. Finally rather not very realistic. But it is a masterpiece. Very different from the Dutch painting of the time. Thank you.
