A Real life Rembrandt. A man in oriental costume (King Uzziah stricken by leprosy) circa 1639. The identification of the sitter has long been discussed, and has traditionally been described as a 'rabbi' or 'oriental'. The blotchy appearance of the man's skin has since led to his identification as King Uzziah of Judah, who is recorded in the Bible as being struck by leprosy for violating the Temple (2 Chronicles 26: 16 - 20). Seen at Chatsworth House, England 2010.
