Portrait of a Man Holding Gloves

Rembrandt (Rembrandt van Rijn) Dutch

Not on view

In style and execution this portrait of a dignified older gentleman is consistent with Rembrandt's work of about 1645–50. The picture's apparent quality has been diminished by abrasion in the face; the jawline is retouched and the hand reconstructed. The eyes, mouth, and textures of skin and hair remain typical of Rembrandt.
