Rembrandt the pioneer of self-portraits and his influence on the modern selfie

Rembrandt: An early master of selfies 🎨

Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, one of the most brilliant painters of the Dutch "Golden Age", painted himself over 80 times in his artistic career.

The “selfie star” of his time 🤳

It's fair to say that he was the early "selfie star" of his time. His deep understanding of the human face and soul enabled him to capture his emotions, states and character traits in a way that never fails to fascinate viewers. #artgenius #selfportrait

From young to old: Rembrandt's self-portrayals 🧔👴

While other artists depicted those around them or their patrons, Rembrandt created striking self-portraits that demonstrate both his artistry and his ability for self-reflection. From the young, confident artist to the aging man bearing the scars of life, his self-portraits reveal an impressive range of emotions and moods.
