As the leader of the Dutch Remonstrants, Uytenbogaert (1577-1644) played a central role in the history of his time. Until his banishment (1618-26), in the wake of the victory of orthodox Calvinism over Remonstrantism, he exercised great political influence, partly in his function as tutor of Prince Frederik Hendrik. After his return to Holland he settled in the Hague, but paid frequent visits to Amsterdam.

This portrait of Uytenbogaert was Rembrandt's first official commission for an etched portrait. Until that time he had made portrait etchings only of members of his family. The official nature of this portrait is underlined by its Latin inscription (“He who was honored by the pious and the army was damned by the assembled preachers. Worse handled by fate than by time, he now returns, The Hague, to you.”) Inscriptions such as these were a common feature of formal etched portraits in the 17th century, though a rarity in Rembrandt's own works.
