Self Portrait Drawing at a Window

Details:

Through a series of nearly one hundred self-portraits etched, painted, and drawn over a forty year period, Rembrandt van Rijn created a unique visual autobiography, chronicling his life in his artwork. Among these famed works, Self Portrait Drawing at a Window captures Rembrandt in 1648 (around the age of forty-two) as a thoughtful professional artist. He peers out at the viewer with a determined and serious expression, and he wears a modest painter’s coat and narrow brimmed hat.
