Rembrandt van Rijn - Self Portrait in a Cap, Wide-eyed and Open-mouthed

Regular price £9.95

Of all the self-portraits in which Rembrandt depicts emotions, this one is probably the most appealing. He looks frightened here, with pursed lips and wide-open eyes. He is seen slightly from below, so that he seems to be retreating. The etching is clear and cleverly executed, with the contours of the shoulders and cap fading into the edges.
