Form: Collins Sestet

The artist in confident pose
Dressed in affluent clothes
Reflecting the renaissance
As a painted response
From the gilded stage
Of the golden age
Comparing his talent to the stars
Renaissance men setting the bars
In their imagery and paints
Tied by the traditional restraints
Different times, a different gauge
Reflected within the golden age
Portrait at the Age of 34 by Rembrandt, 1640, oil on canvas. Located at the National Gallery, London, UK
