Rembrandt, all too human

 Alma Kuzma

Jan Lievens

Portrait of Rembrandt, c. 1630

This young man, fixing us with his attentive gaze, is almost certainly Rembrandt, depicted at an early age, but recognisable by his rusty curls.

The young artist is dressed in fantasy costume dress, wearing a cap and gorget. He has a light scarf around his neck. This portrait was painted by Rembrandt’s colleague and friend Jan Lievens.

The artist applied Rembrandt’s style, using dark colour and a highly distinctive chiaroscuro. Lievens scratched the subject’s curls into the paint, just as Rembrandt had in his self-portrait dating from 1628
