Marten and Oopjen are the only couple that Rembrandt painted life-size, standing, and at full-length. Marten’s father came to Amsterdam from Antwerp as a Protestant refugee. He made his fortune as the owner of a sugar refinery. Marten married Oopjen in 1633. He was 20 and a law student, ready for a career in politics. Sadly, he died a mere eight years later.
