A view of Het Torentje a manor and dependencies between Naarden and Oud Bussum which belonged to Jan Uytenbogaert, the Receiver General, of whom Rembrandt also etched a portrait in 1639 (B. 281). It depicts a favorite theme of the artist, a small group of buildings embowered in trees. The theme here is given its broadest expression, both in the panorama it depicts and the size of the plate which Rembrandt utilized. In the four states through which the plate was worked, Rembrandt corrected the balance by small but significant alterations. The most telling of these being the changes on the tower to the right, from which the cupola is removed.
