Self-portraits made by Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–1669) and Edgar Degas (1834–1917) at the start of their illustrious careers are seen side by side, for the first time, in an exhibition that highlights the Dutch master's guiding influence on the young French Impressionist and offers an intimate look at their unique kinship.
