Rembrandt van Rijn Regards A Day's Work
Oil on wooden palette
27.5 x 22 x 5 cm
Framed in clear perspex box frame
Painted onto a small wooden palette, smooth with age and lovingly varnished on the reverse, Frean imagines an ageing Rembrandt in his bare studio. He has discarded his palette and looks at the canvas he's been working on with his model and longtime lover, Hendrickje. Representing fidelity, a dog sleeps beneath the table in his studio, oblivious to the couple's uncertain financial future.
This painting was shown as part of a series of works on palettes at Paul Smith's shop in Mayfair, London in November 2017 during Frean's exhibition Who's Counting?
It has been framed in such as way as to present it as an object in the round, the hanging wire hidden behind so that it appears to float in front of the wall in its clear perspex frame.
