Jeremia treurend over de verwoesting van Jeruzalem (easel painting (painting by form); Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn (Leiden 1606-07-15 - Amsterdam ...; 1630; Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands); SK-A-3276; RM001.collect.5242)
Note: Seated at the base of a large column, the prophet Jeremiah mourns the destruction of Jerusalem. It was an event he had prophesied but was powerless to prevent. Rembrandt painted this panel in 1630. The light falls almost exclusively on the old man and his immediate surroundings. His bushy beard, wrinkled forehead and fur-lined cloak are depicted with great precision. Away from the light, on the left in the background, the fall of Jerusalem is shown. The Babylonian troops of King Nebuchadnezzar II are marching into the city and putting it to the torch. These events occurred in the year 586 BC. Zedekiah, King of Judah, is standing outside the city, his head in his hands. Nebuchadnezzar ordered his eyes to be gouged out.
