Rembrandt's mother, Neeltgen Willemsdochter Zuytbrouck, daughter of a baker, was the mother of nine children, of whom Rembrandt was the eighth. She died in 1640. Rembrandt seems to have recorded her features in a number of etchings, this one included. However, there is no documentary evidence that the old lady in these works is indeed Rembrandt's mother. It was during the 1679 inventory of Clement de Jonghe's estate that these images were assumed to be depictions of the artist's mother.
