Rembrandt and Saskia.

Name: Rembrandt and Saskia.
Artist: Rembrandt van Rijn
Location: The Dresden Gallery, Dresden, Germany
Year: 1635

Saskia was Rembrandt's wife and this painting seems to indicate that they had a good time together. There is a celebratory, snapshot mood, Rembrandt looking directly at the viewer. His left had casually and sensually rest on Saskia's back. She seems to be sitting on his lap. Rembrandt is dressed splendidly and he holds up a flagon of ale to perhaps propose a toast to the good life.
