Carel Fabritius Portrait

Biography


Carel Fabritius was Rembrandtís most outstanding pupil: he was a brilliant experimental artist whose exceptional reputation rests on a handful of surviving paintings. Carel was born to the family of a village schoolmaster and amateur artist, who himself gave his son the first lessons in drawing and painting. Between 1641 and 1643 Carel worked in Rembrandtís workshop in Amsterdam. His earliest known painting The Raising of Lazarus reveals his careful study of his masterís The Night Watch.
