HERE IS THE REMBRANDT´S SELF-PORTRAIT I´M WORKING ON:
1st) It´s the original image (that I´ve looked for in google images) about Rembrandt´s self-portrait.
2nd) It´s the engraving I´ve done in a linocut.
3rd) It´s the final result that I´ve obtained when I printed the engraving with ink.
In this painting we´re looking at an old man.
All starts when Rembrandt thought he was
dealing with a gorgeous, smart and handsome
guy, himself . But when he started getting old
his perfect look changed so he decided to also
paint the ugliness, realism.
We now can analyze it in this picture with the
-The original paiting shows the darkness and
only focus his faces with a light streak.
-The elderly man has several wrinkles because
of his age.
-Due to his depression, his eyes, eyebrows
and eyelids express sadness.
-His hair is yellowish and it´s worn-out.
-He also has huge ears but a thin, tiny and
clearly defined mouth.
-His cheecks are large as his chin, but he has no beard.
• The most obvious aspect of Rembrandt’s late style is that the brushwork is, in general,
broader. Individual brushstrokes sometimes remain visible, although the differentiation in the
brushwork is extraordinary. Rembrandt is also known as a painter of light and shade, and of
course as an artist whos technique, REALISM, would lead some critics to claim that he used
to prefer ugliness to beauty.
I´ve looked for the information on the internet in different web pages.
