The Parable of the Rich Fool (Rembrandt)
The Parable of the Rich Fool, also known as The Money Changer, is an oil painting on canvas of 1627 by Rembrandt, now in the Gemäldegalerie, Berlin. Produced early in the artist's career, it depicts the eponymous Biblical parable. The model for the figure is said to have been Rembrandt's father.
