The Card Player

Rembrandt gives us a simple snippet of daily life in his etching The Card Player. He focuses on a young, well-dressed man who carefully sorts through a deck of cards and rearranges their order. In the seventeenth century, card games were a popular pastime, and the playing of cards was a popular subject in Dutch art. When Rembrandt was merely eighteen years old (probably around the same age as the sitter/model here), he posed for a card-playing scene by his fellow student and future rival, Jan van Lievens. No one exactly knows who the sitter in this etching is, but it has been speculated that it was one of his pupils or younger assistants who modeled for the master artist.
