• Rembrandt Self Portrait

    Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn

    Rembrandt was about 22 when he drew this self portrait. The manner in which it is drawn is loose and sketch-like. His characteristic features, the unkempt head of curly hair, the wide nose and faint moustache, are accurately captured. Rembrandt began by sketching his face in pen and brown ink, showing the contrast between light and shadow. He then reworked the drawing with brush and grey ink. This was a rare combination of techniques for Rembrandt.
