Rembrandt van Rijn
The Goldsmith
Gift of Ruth W. and Clarence J. Boldt, Jr.
Within a dark interior, a man in a hat and wearing an apron stands at the left side of the image, facing a furnace. He holds the long handle of a tool into the furnace, holding his left hand on his hip. Behind him, to the right, are two youthful assistants wearing dark broad-brimmed hats, one leaning on an anvil. Further to the right are a seated woman and small child and at the far right is a man in a hat going down a flight of stairs. A second woman is visible in the background between the smith and the furnace, she is looking at the smith with hands raised. The interior shows evidence of the smith's work with tools hanging on the wall and a shovel next to one of the assistants.

Viewed at night from the water, a man works deep inside an interior that is brightly lit from an unseen light source. Surrounding the threshold are dark lines indicating the shadowy exterior space. To the left of the doorway is a window that is partly open to reveal a figure standing facing outward towards the viewer.

Church Steps and Blacksmith Shop
Gift of the Marvin Felheim Collection
Several figures are seen within an interior; the two principal figures are each bent over their tasks. The man at the bottom of the image holds a hammer in his left hand and is about to strike something held in his right hand that is positioned on an anvil; his figure is leaning forward, in profile, facing to the right. The other figure sits with his back to the viewer, facing to the left and towards a window at the far left. A furnace is visible at the center background, and other figures are lightly drawn in at the far right. Deep shadows and a timber ceiling create a sense of a dark interior and numerous horseshoes are visible on the wall between the furnace and the window.
