In or around 1629, Rembrandt painted the self-portrait on the left, which now hangs in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremberg.

Our painting, on the right, is very similar, in both costume and pose, and was painted on paper and mounted to an oak panel.

It seems unlikely that Rembrandt would have painted a second portrait of himself, but the the oak panel is cradled in the manner of the period.

Rembrandt required his students to copy his self-portraits as part of their training in his studio; the evidence strongly suggests that this is such a copy.

If this is so, this portrait was painted before 1669, the year of the master’s death.

Oil on paper, mounted on oak panel, and framed in a period Dutch “ribbon” frame .

Very good condition, recently professionally cleaned.

Painting dimensions: 13-3/4" X 10"

Frame: 21-1/4" X 17-3/4"

Price: $1,850
