Titus at his desk
It is possible that this is a portrait of Rembrandt's son Titus around the age of fourteen. Slumped over his papers, the boy stares contemplatively into the distance. He holds a pen in one hand and an inkwell and pen case in the other. This painting's remarkable features are the lighting, the triangular composition and the crude, almost expressionistic brushwork in the foreground.
