Andrew Bonnycastle's painting of a young woman at the Frick Collection in New York City studying Rembrandt's self-portrait

Going Dutch

A young woman wandering through the West Gallery of the Frick Collection in New York City pauses to admire a 1658 Self Portrait by Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn.  Rembrandt created over 40 self-portraits in his lifetime.  Here we see him dressed as an ill-tempered monarch in a strange, yet timeless, costume and wearing a large velvet artist's beret. He holds a painter's stick as though it were a scepter in gigantic hands that remind us of the artist's dependence on them.
