About this artwork
In this painting, I wanted to present a copy of Rembrandt's self-portrait in the actual size as the original, states artist Jose H. Alvarenga. I also painted a Rembrandt from Talens tube of paint and a brush. The color on the paint tube is copper, just like Rembrandt«s original painting. On the upper tape, it reads in Dutch, 'Self portrait, 1630, 12.2 x 15.5 cms, oil on copper,' and the bottom tape, 'Rembrandt Van Rijn, born 1606 died 1669.'
