Jordaens: "The Bean King"
 
 

A bean-feast is primarily an annual dinner given by an employer to his or her employees. By extension, colloquially, it describes any jollification.

Rembrandt: "Woman Bathing in a Stream"
 
 

Rembrandt van Rijn. A Woman bathing in a Stream (Hendrickje Stoffels?)
1654
, National Gallery, London, was painted by Rembrandt at about
the same time as Bathsheba and shares a similar spirit of intimacy.
 
 
The model is probably Hendrickje Stoffels (about 1625/6 - 1663). She lived in Rembrandt's household from about 1649 until her death. She became his common-law wife and bore him a daughter, Cornelia, who was baptised on 30 October 1654 (the year of this painting).

It has been suggested that the sumptuous red robe on the river bank indicates that the painting might be a sketch for a religious or mythological picture; the model might be in the guise of an Old Testament heroine, such as Susanna or Bathsheba, or the goddess Diana, who were all spied upon by men while bathing. However, there is no evidence for a completed painting after this work and, moreover, Rembrandt did not use oil sketches as preparation for larger-scale paintings.

The handling of the paint is unusually spontaneous. The picture appears unfinished in some parts, for example, in the shadow at the hem of the raised chemise, the right arm and the left shoulder, but it was clearly finished to Rembrandt's satisfaction since he signed and dated it.

Bartholin Caspar
 

Caspar Bartholin the Younger (also Caspar Bartholin Secundus; 10 September 1655 in Copenhagen – 11 June 1738), was a Danish anatomist who first described the "Bartholin's gland" in the 17th century.

 


Caspar Bartholin
the Younger

  He came from an eminent family. He is the grandson of theologian and anatomist Caspar Bartholin (the Elder) and son of Thomas Bartholin. His uncle was Rasmus Bartholin and his brother, a historian, was called Thomas like his father.
The discovery of the Bartholin's gland is sometimes mistakenly credited to his grandfather.
Caspar Bartholin the Younger started his medical studies in 1671 at the age of 16. When he was 19 he was appointed as professor of philosophy. He described the glands that bear his name in 1677.
In about 1696, Danish-born French anatomist Jacob B. Winslow was Bartholin's prosector.
