This self-portrait of the twenty-three-year-old artist, painted in Leiden, belongs to a series of head studies (Dutch: tronies) in which Rembrandt experimented with light and shadow, facial expressions and physiognomy, as well as various painting techniques such as scratching curls of hair into the still-wet paint.
