    About

    Rembrandt first drew the face and collar with pen and brown ink. The line is fluid and strongly applied, although it has faded with time. It is likely that Rembrandt drew himself under a strong artificial light from the left, as a second layer of grey wash reinforces the central line of darker shadows that divides the lighter from darker areas. The white of the paper alone suggests the dramatic light. Rembrandt' s promotion of his self-image through numerous self-portraits in paintings, engravings, etchings and drawings is well known. This rapid sketch, one of his first self-portraits, was made when Rembrandt was between 22 and 23 years old. Rembrandt was not just interested in his own features for his own sake. He also needed to understand and reproduce accurately the widest variety of human feelings and emotions. In this drawing, the artist' s open mouth, his dark open eyes and his ruffled hair create a vivid immediacy.
