Rembrandt van Rijn - Self-portrait wearing a soft cap
Rembrandt devoted his entire artistic career to self-portraiture that formed an important part of his oeuvre. In his early career, his self-portraits often had the character of studies. In them, the artist trained to capture facial features and convey diverse emotions and grimaces. In this frontal portrait, Rembrandt depicted himself in a serene and self-confident disposition. Although meticulously executed, the image evokes a sense of individual spirit.
