Do you have a favourite Rembrandt? Of course, it’s an invidious question. Which of us can choose only one from any artists’ oeuvre, let alone that of a Master such as Rembrandt [1606-1669]. If I had a gun to my back, it would be one of his early self-portraits, Self-portrait with gorget [above], which lays bare a touching vulnerability and innocence. I suspect that part of the attraction lies in its passing resemblance to my maternal forebears in the set of the eyes!
Take care and keep laughing!
