Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History



  • Self–Portrait, 1660
    Rembrandt (Rembrandt van Rijn) (Dutch, 1606–1669)
    Oil on canvas; 31 5/8 x 26 1/2 in. (80.3 x 67.3 cm)
    Bequest of Benjamin Altman, 1913 (14.40.618)

    The dozen or more self-portraits that date from each decade of Rembrandt's career vary considerably in composition, expression, and technique. In the late examples, the broad applications of paint convey a candid record of his aging features. It is highly unlikely that this self-portrait was the pendant to the Museum's portrait, Hendrickje Stoffels (26.101.9), also signed and dated 1660, as has sometimes been suggested.

    This work of art also appears on Connections: Artists by Themselves , Dutch , Introspection , Living with Vermeer , The Ideal Man
