Rembrandt, ‘The Three Singers (Hearing)’, c. 1624, The Leiden Collection, New York Three figures are placed together in a triangular composition. On the right stands a balding old man holding a thick music book. He appears to beat time with his right hand, while all three figures sing a song from the book. Warm candlelight coming from the left illuminates the faces, particularly the old man’s caricatural features. His ear, glowing red in the light, features prominently.
