Example text

A painter did not make his own panels. Manufacturing panels was a craft that can be shown to have been a prerogative of the joiners' and cabinetmakers' guild. This had obviously been so selfevident that it was not stated explicitly in the charter of the guild in Leiden. At precisely the time that Rembrandt was working in Leiden, however, the joiners' and cabinetmakers' guild felt itselfforced, in 1627, to lodge a request with the Leiden authorities for its charter to be extended to include this right.

At that time one Jan Pietersz. van den Bosch, a woodturner by trade, who was not a member of the guild, had become active in the making and selling of panels; the guild obviously needed the regulations changed to prevent him 1o . Most probably there were still at this time no middlemen in Leiden in the trade between the producers and users of panels. This one sees from a petition to the Leiden authorities by Leender Hendricx Volmarijn of Rotterdam in 1643, to be allowed to open a shop in the town to sell paintings and artist's materials l l .

In an earlier stage of the composition this figure (like that in the Simeon in the Temple) stood out against a light background, but in addition to this Judas was, in the first version, counterbalanced by a figure set somewhat higher up to the left, and the light fell behind and along a curtain, which formed a dark repoussoir. Both this latter motif and the diagonal spatial relationship between the principal figures put the original form of the composition very close to that of the Old men disputing of 1628, making it even more likely that the Judas repentant was started in that year.
