R – Self portrait Rembrandt – 1659
This painting was painted by Jean Elliot. It is a self-portrait of Rembrandt from 1659.
On this image he is 53 years old and looks friendly and soft. It is Rembrandt as a somewhat friendly old man with a soft look in the eyes. Jean Elliot: “The special way in which he has brought the paint so thick is difficult to imitate and has cost me some effort. The end result has therefore become even more valuable to me. ”
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.
