(STILL IN PROGRESS)
Rembrandt van Rijn
One of history’s more prolific self-portraitists, Rembrandt painted around 100 self-portraits throughout his life in various media. This is one of the earlier ones, showing the artist in his early twenties (http://collection.imamuseum.org). He is already beginning to experiment unconventionally with expression, also seen in ‘Self-Portrait in a Cap, Open-Mouthed’ 1630 below.
