By the same token, when teaching is something of a sideline to an artist's own painting efforts, it's likely Rembrandt chose his apprentices quite carefully, taking on only the most promising applicants. Many times the deciding factor in making an attribution comes down to incidentals.To bolster their argument, they might point out that very often the work of the master and that of his apprentice were so nearly alike that their attributions have been confused. For the most part, Rembrandt painted portraits and religious scenes (with the occasional erratic erotic image thrown in).Rembrandt had several apprentices over the course of his career, though his atelier was quite modest compared to that of some of the other Dutch Golden Age painters of his day.ALL BIDDERS MUST AGREE THAT THEY HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD BONHAMS' CONDITIONS OF SALE AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THEM, AND AGREE TO PAY THE BUYER'S PREMIUM AND ANY OTHER CHARGES MENTIONED IN THE NOTICE TO BIDDERS.
