Self-Portrait with Beret and Turned Up Collar

Rembrandt1 1

In Self Portrait with Beret and Turned Up Collar Rembrandt is seated in a broadly painted fur cloak, his hands clasped in his lap. Light from the upper right fully illuminates the face, hollowing the form of the cheek, and allowing for the representation of blemishes on the right cheek and ear lobe. The picture is painted in a restrained range of browns and grays enriched by a red shape that probably indicates the back of his chair
