More about The Lawyer’s Office
Between 1533 and 1545, Marinus van Reymerswaele made distinctive paintings of lawyers, bankers, and moneychangers which relate to fundamental changes in the legal and commercial infrastructure in the sixteenth century. His works are mostly adapted from other artists such as Quentin Massys and Albrecht Dürer, but he brought a unique sense of Mannerist caricature and vivid realism to his works. The Lawyer’s Office is only one of five themes that he painted multiple times throughout his career. A copy of the painting is now in the New Orleans Museum of Art.
