Self-portrait, Etching at a Window, Rembrandt van Rijn, 1648

etching, h 160mm × w 130mm More details

While it might seem odd that Rembrandt is wearing a hat inside the house, it was actually part of his studio work clothes. This unadorned portrayal makes one almost forget the unparalleled technique he uses to create this effect. With a combination of etching and drypoint, he achieves an unprecedented painterly tonality.
