Drager/materiaal
paneel, olieverf
The wood is identified as walnut. The panel displays a series of cracks. A second panel of equal thickness with cradling is glued to the back. The cradle was renewed in 1942 (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 4 (2005), no. IV 13).
Vorm/maten
staande rechthoek 48,9 x 40,2 cm
Unlikely that these are the original dimensions of the painting. The head is set in an unusual narrow frame, compared to other self portraits by Rembrandt and there are saw marks along the lower edge unusual for works on panel by Rembrandt. A reason for reducing the size could be the many cracks in the support. The reduction in size must have taken place prior to 1783, when Von Mechel mentioned the painting in his catalog in its present dimensions (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 4 (2005), no. IV 13).
Signatuur/opschrift
Informatie over de signatuur, datering, opschrift of merk op de voor- of achterzijde van het kunstwerk
  • draagt signatuur linksboven: Rembrandt.f
    The signature is partly located on an overpainting applied to a crack in the panel in the left upper corner. This has led the authors of the Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings to conclude that the signature is false. They suggest that the signature was later added in this unusual place to replace an original one that may have been lost when the painting was reduced. The type of letters used exclude the possibility that it was copied from an original signature (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 4 (2005), no. IV 13).

ca. 1655 (1652 - 1658)
In art historical literature, the painting was variously dated to 1664 (Smith 1829-1842, vol. 7 (1836), no. 222); 1665 (Hofstede de Groot 1907-1928 (German edition), vol. 6 (1915), no. 581). Since Bredius dated the painting to 1657 (Bredius 1935, no. 49), the painting has been dated to c. 1657 (Bauch 1955, no. 326; Gerson 1968, no. 324; Tümpel 1986, no. 171; Wenen 1991, no. 414); 1657-1659 (Slatkes 1992, no. 262); c. 1655 (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 4 (2005), no. IV 13). Dating the work to the second half of the 1650s is based on comparison with physiognomical features in other self portraits from the same period (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 4 (2005), no. IV 13).

    Mahogany panel, 50 x 40 cm, signed "n[ach] Rembrandt"

    Present whereabouts unknown. Depicts the original in its already reduced state and reproduces damages to such an extent that it must be a relatively late copy (Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings 1982-2015, vol. 4 (2005), no. IV 13).
