This masterly portrait was once believed to be the work of Rembrandt. But it is actually a made by his brilliant student Carel Fabritius. About ten paintings by Fabritius have survived; the artist died prematurely when his studio in Delft was destroyed by a huge gunpowder explosion in 1654.
Martin ROYALTON-KISCH asked
On your site, I can only find 4 lines of text and a zoomable but unsavable imaage of the wonderful Fabritius Self-Portrait! Is there more somewhere else ont the site - measurements, provenance, literature, etc.? Many thanks!
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered
Dear Martin, all these specifications are available on the website if you look under 'show all details'. For additional literature on the painter and this self-portrait I would contact the Nederlands Institute for Art History (RKD) in Den Haag. I hope this helps! Best, Lisa Heinis
