Rembrandt: Girl at a Window

Girl at a Window: Rembrandt

Girl at a Window is a 1645 painting by Dutch artist Rembrandt van Rijn which leaves much of its interpretation entirely up to the viewer.

Here we see a young girl staring out at the viewer. She is leaning against a table or ledge and there aren’t really any other standout characteristics other than her red rosy cheeks. The background is indistinguishable, we don’t know where she is or what she is looking out at. We have no idea what is happening, or even if there is a window in question. The small girl is nonchalant some art critics note that she is smiling.

Rembrandt’s Girl at a Window is in the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London, United Kingdom.
