Titus van Rijn

Portrait of Titus (Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna)

Titus van Rijn (22 September 1641 - 4 September 1668) was the fourth and only surviving child of Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn and Saskia van Uylenburgh. Titus is best known as a figure or model in his father's paintings and studies.

Titus was born in Amsterdam. After Rembrandt's bankruptcy in 1656, Titus and his stepmother Hendrickje Stoffels were named as in charge of Rembrandt's affairs and began an art-dealership, specializing in Rembrandt's work. At age 15, Titus made a will at his father's insistence, making his father sole heir.

In 1668, Titus married Magdalena van Loo (1641-1669). Her father was Jan van Loo, silversmith, whose brother was Gerrit van Loo, a lawyer in Het Bildt. The couple lived at Magdalena's mother's house on the Singel. They had one daughter, Titia (1669-1715), who married Fran├žois van Bijler in 1686.
