Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–1669) Self-Portrait Leaning on a Stone Sill
State I of II
At thirty-three, Rembrandt presented himself as a sixteenth-century gentleman courtier in his Self-Portrait Leaning on a Stone Sill. In this etching of 1639, his costume and pose allude to portraits by the Italian Renaissance masters Raphael and Titian that were in Amsterdam during Rembrandt's time.
