Rembrandt self-portrait from 1659 at the age of 53 : Self-portrait, Rembrandt van Rijn Rembrandt painted this remarkable self-portrait in 1659, after he had suffered frorm personal financial collapse. Much can be read into his expression, but the painting itself is a triumph.
I like the idea of a self portrait using mixed media - might have to use this one for class, perhaps pick 4 artists and styles? Picasso, Dali, LItchenstein, Rembrant, etc. Must pick 4 artists that we studied in class.
