Constantijn van Renesse took occasional lessons from Rembrandt from about 1649 to 1652, creating numerous drawings of biblical scenes. This sheet relates an episode from the gospel of Luke in which the resurrected Jesus dines with his followers, ultimately revealing his true identity after breaking and blessing the bread. Van Renesse’s composition begins with black and red chalk, followed by layers of wash, and finally pen and ink. Some scholars believe Rembrandt subsequently amended the drawing, using quick strokes of his pen to adjust Jesus’s features, hair, torso, and arm. Rembrandt made more corrections to Van Renesse’‘s drawings than any of his other pupils’ works, suggesting Van Renesse specifically requested such interventions.
