Available as painting or Giclée * Click on the image to enlarge it.

Painted by Jean Elliot, this painting shows a self-portrait of Rembrandt with a beautifully painted collar. He looks straight at the viewer with a mischievous look.

Jean Elliot: “The way in which Rembrandt reflects the light of the collar on his face again shows the barely equal technique for playing with light.”

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 setting very fine brush strokes he increasingly went to rough 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.
