This excellent copy after a self-portrait of the famous Dutch painter Rembrandt van Rijn (1606 – 1669), which is in the collection of the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin today, is characterized by the quality of the way of painting of an unknown 18th century artist. The frame is original and shows vegetal decoration.
The painting is in good condition consistent with the age. The varnish is slightly darkened and scattered marks can be seen. There are areas with scuffing due to the frame along the upper edges and corners of the canvas. Overall tiny craquelé can be seen on the canvas and there are a few small pressure marks. Retouched spots can be mainly seen in the upper part. The frame is in good condition and shows only a few traces of usage. The dimensions are 53 x 47.7 cm and the frame measures 79 x 72 cm. (msc)
