Rembrandt’s famous painting The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicholaes Tulp (1632) had a huge impact on Vincent when he first saw it in Holland. Preoccupied with direct observation, Rembrandt always made an intense study of his subjects, and the way in which he describes faces with patterns of light and shadow in this painting gives an extraordinary impression of the living, thinking minds behind them; this passion for authenticity in character and storytelling is a quality that these two artists, born 400 years apart, have in common. But there is a second reason why this work holds a special significance for Vincent. The barbers who often feature in his own paintings share an interesting history with Dr. Tulp: from the Middle Ages to the Mid 18th Century, physicians mainly diagnosed, treated and educated, but they left the surgery to the people who possessed the equipment and the skill set to get the job done – the barbers. These men became known as the barber-surgeons and their name lives on at Barber-Surgeons’ Hall in the heart of the city of London.
