Portrait of Himself by REMBRANDT VAN RIJN {Dutch School}Portrait of Himself by


IN REMBRANDT’S portraits of himself, the world has the full history of an artist
who won and lost the material satisfactions of life, but gained, at last, the in­
effable comfort that settles on the soul of man when he has finished a great
work; when, without malice or reserve, he has given expression to his burdens,
and thus put them from him,

As a youth, he made countless studies of his face,
his intention being to show how the human countenance reflects the various
moods and passions; but all that is visible in those first studies is a tousled,
bull-necked young man acting before a mirror.

Next, he painted himself at the
flood of his prosperity, proud and cavalier, and once, holding Saskia on his
knee, with laughter in his face–his only happy portrait. In his last years­
for his imaginative life matured slowly, with his tribulations and the absolute
self-discipline enabling him to disregard everything extraneous to his purpose
-he arrived at the highest reaches of his genius and painted, in 1659, the
Portrait of Himself here reproduced.
