1)These doctors are listening and watching Dr. Nicolaes Tulp explain the musculature of the arm. They are real doctors. They paid fees to be included in the painting. Dr. Tulp paid much more to be the lead figure in the painting. The corpse is that of a criminal who had been executed that very day. Only one public dissection a year was allowed. It was a major social event and was also open to the public for a fee. It would be a very long time until the idea was accepted that autopsies and dissections of human cadavers was necessary to advance medicine. From Rembrandt's "Anatomy Lesson."
2) This is Rembrandt’s only seascape, "Sea of Galilee". It depicts Jesus calming the waves of the sea, saving the lives of the fourteen men aboard the vessel. Rembrandt included a self portrait of himself in the boat, next to Jesus and his twelve disciples.
