More Talent Than Luck

Carel Fabritius (1622-1654) is not nearly as well-known as his famous instructor Rembrandt, which is a shame because Fabritius was arguably Rembrandt’s most talented pupil and someone we’d be better acquainted with if tragedy hadn’t claimed the painter at the age of thirty-two.Read about it (here).


  1. Makes you wonder how many legends were lost to tragedy before their time

  2. wow. how tragic...and what a way to have life cut short as well...makes me think of all the artists these days cut short as well and imagining what they could have done....
