The Staalmeesters is an art reproduction of Staalmeesters, painted by the Dutch painter Rembrandt van Rijn, in 1662s. After Rembrandt ran into financial difficulties in the 1950s, he moved to a rental house on the Rozengracht. The Amsterdam elite no longer knocked on his door as often as before. Yet he remained popular: this important guild asked him for their portrait. Rembrandt made it a lively scene, pretending – disturbed by our entry – to look up from their work. The Staalmeesters: the college of steel masters (worthwhile) of the Amsterdam cloth maker's guild, gathered around a table on which there is a Persian rug, on the table the opened steel book. Pictured (left to right): Jacob van Loon (1595-1674), Volckert Jansz (1605/10-81), Willem van Doeyenburg (ca. 1616-87), the servant Frans Hendricksz Bel (1629-1701), Aernout van der Mye (c. 1625-81) and Jochem de Neve (1629-81). On the right above the fireplace a painting with a burning beacon.
