Description
English: “The Kitchen Maid” is considered by many to be one of Rembrandt’s most representative works. The warm shades of red, brown and yellow, and the vivid depiction of the girl, make this one of his true masterpieces. One might assume that Rembrandt had a special person, perhaps someone in his household, as a model, someone he knew well, since he has given her such a distinct character. However it was not his Hendrickje, the woman he was living with in 1651. She was 25 years old by then and the girl in “The Kitchen Maid” is probably somewhat younger. In the middle of the 17th century, Rembrandt painted a series of paintings on the borderline between portraits and genre pictures of young women. Nationalmuseum’s collection includes a series of drawings with a similar composition, where the model is resting on her elbows.
Svenska: Kökspigan betraktas av många som ett av Rembrandts mest representativa verk. De varma färgtonerna i rött, brunt och gult samt den levande framställningen av flickan gör den till ett av hans verkliga mästerverk. Man antar att Rembrandt har haft en speciell person, kanske någon i hans hushåll som modell, någon som han kände väl, eftersom han givit henne en sådan tydlig karaktär. Men det är inte hans Hendrickje, den kvinna som han levde ihop med 1651, hon var 25 år gammal då och Kökspigan är förmodligen något yngre. I mitten av 1600-talet målade Rembrandt en serie målningar på gränsen mellan porträtt och genrebild av unga flickor. I Nationalmuseums samlingar finns en serie teckningar med liknande komposition där modellen vilar armbågarna mot ett underlag.
