This magnificent portrait represents Rembrandt’s only surviving child Titus at about age sixteen. Titus wears a sixteenth-century Venetian costume and a fantastic red beret out of which spill voluminous curls. A masterful portraitist, Rembrandt captured the young man’s captivating gaze and serious demeanour. Unlike other paintings by Rembrandt, the authenticity of this superb portrait has never been questioned.
