Theo Buck's subtle reading of Paul Celan's 'Einkanter: Rembrandt' convincingly argues that the poem was inspired by a painting from the Rembrandt school, Man Reading in a Lofty Room.
"Unter ein Bild" is not Celan's only ekphrastic poem - see, for example, "Einkanter" (II,392), on a Rembrandt etching - but it is to my knowledge his only emblematically structured ekphrasis, and so I treat it here in isolation from the others.
