Rembrandt painted this self portrait at the height of his success. The pose resembles a self portrait done by Durer in 1498. The body is turned more towards the viewer and the entire arm rests on the balustrade. The face is painted in short, regular brush strokes. Each hair of the moustache is rendered separately and his hair is shorter from the previous year giving him a more dignified look. Rembrandt has dressed himself as a master from bygone days, but he has managed above all to remain himself.
