Rembrandt - Philosopher in Meditation - Jean-Marie Clarke

EXPERTISE of SIGNATURES

Starting October 2011, I will give no further "expertises" without a prior contribution
to the operation of the site of at least 50 US dollars to be paid through PayPal.
Until now I have provided this service free of charge,
but I have found myself giving advice and information

to art professionals and even government agencies.
This is a non-commercial site, but it costs money to keep it online.

Disclaimer: I only give an educated opinion and do not issue certificates of authenticity.

The photo above shows the Philosopher in Meditation getting a look-over  from Louvre curator Jacques Foucart in 1987.
The painting in fact represents the blind Tobit and Anna waiting for the return of their son Tobias.
