Which artist was least successful in his lifetime? Rembrandt, De la Tour, Rubeens, or Vermeer?

I think it was Vermeer.

    I think you're right, if you measure financial success. When Vermeer died he left a large family and many debts.

    Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Did you have financial gain in mind when you asked that question? Life for an artist is never easy, especially without a sponsor. Both Vermeer and Rembrandt van Rijn had personal tragedies and financial hardship. Vermeer, however, had fewer paintings but thoe he had madwe him one of the greates painters of the Dutch Golden Age, especially in his use lf light. Peter Paul Rubens,(not Rubeens) on the other hand, was prolific and had many apprendices and students. He did not paint all his works alone. I know far less about Georges de la Tour.
