Portrait of a Man (1650-1660)

Rembrandt (1606-1669)

Portrait of a Man
Oil on canvas, 83.5 x 64.5 cm
Metropolitan Museum of ArtNew York

This portrait is generally considered to be by Rembrandt, and is somewhat less uniformly thought to date from the 1650s. Both questions are made more difficult by the condition of the picture: the hands, the body, and the hat are badly abraded. The face is fairly well preserved. (MET)
