The Syndics by Rembrandt van Rijn
The Syndics is Rembrandts first and only portrait of a group of regents. This work is highly remarkable because of its size and more than life-sized figures. Multiple clothmakers are pictured, facing the public, looking up as if they are surprised by the arrival. One of the syndics stands up, like he just notices the public.
A cloth/drapery is on the table, being checked on quality and colours. Furthermore a book is depicted, most likely containing the bookkeeping of this Drapers’ Guild.
This group portrait of 5 gentlemen was made on behalf of the ‘Staalhof’, located in the ‘Staalstreet’ where the painting was displayed after it was finished. Over there the syndics regulated the quality and colours of cloths sold in the city on Good Fridays from 1661 until 1662. The mayor of Amsterdam appointed these syndics.
