This painting is painted by Jean Elliot. It is a portrait of an unknown man from 1650 painted by Rembrandt. This image is one of a series of ten portraits.

This work has long been regarded as a self-portrait by Rembrandt. To this day we are discussing this. The person on the image wears a golden helmet that seems to sparkle in the light. Jean: “With much surrender, I painted this labor-intensive canvas. Personally, I think this is one of the most beautiful paintings in the series. The way Rembrandt has painted this is very special. He mastered his profession like no other and was far ahead of his time. ”

Rembrandt’s intriguing painting technique has stimulated innumerable art lovers both during his life and to this day. For artist Jean Elliot it was a huge challenge to imitate the different styles and techniques of Rembrandt. Because of his vision deteriorating with the years, his method changed over the years. From putting very fine brush strokes he went increasingly to coarse painting techniques, which makes it difficult to interpret his work in the right way. With her careful and realistic way of painting, Jean Elliot has succeeded in approaching Rembrandt’s specific talents, such as the representation of light and light.
