Jan Lutma, goldsmith, 1656. Creator: Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn

Jan Lutma, goldsmith, 1656. Although Jan Lutma (c. 1584-1669) was already an elderly man when he was portrayed, he was probably still working as a silversmith. Yet despite the presence of a hammer and a pot containing punches, he is not working here but posing. He holds one of his creations - an object with a turned stem, possibly a candlestick - in his right hand, and beside him on the table is a chased silver drinking bowl. Lutma was born in Emden in East Friesland. After spending five years in Paris, he settled in Amsterdam in 1621, where he built up a reputation as a master silversmith and received a series of official commissions. As he grew older he began to experience problems with his eyes. Yet in 1656 he declared that he had been cured of his blindness. The fact that he is portrayed here in that year with an absent look and half-closed eyes undoubtedly has to do with this disability

**A Glimpse into the Life of a Master Goldsmith** In this poignant portrait print by Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn, Jan Lutma, an esteemed goldsmith and silversmith, is captured in a moment of quiet contemplation. The year 1656 marks not only the creation of this artwork but also a significant milestone in Lutma's life - his declaration that he had been cured of blindness. As we gaze upon his introspective countenance, it becomes clear that age and eyesight issues have taken their toll on him. Yet, despite these challenges, Lutma still holds onto one of his creations with pride - a candlestick or drinking vessel adorned with intricate details. The presence of tools nearby hints at the craftsman's past endeavors, while the chased silver bowl beside him serves as a testament to his mastery in shaping precious metals into works of art. Rembrandt van Rijn masterfully captures Lutma's essence through subtle brushstrokes and nuanced facial expressions, inviting us to step into the quiet intimacy of this 17th-century moment. This print is not only an exquisite representation of Dutch Golden Age portraiture but also a poignant exploration of human experience - one that transcends time and speaks volumes about the enduring power of artistry and creativity.
