Tomorrow, Saturday 18 May is the last day for a chance to see Kenwood House wonderful Rembrandt late self-portrait Gagosian. Visions of the Self: Rembrandt and Now is a fabulous exhibition where Rembrandt shines among contemporary artists, including Jenny Saville, Francis Bacon, Glenn Brown, Dora Maar, in a space which is fabulous itself. Thought-provoking about what a self-portrait is, the theme will continue back at Kenwood in the autumn, when a temporary exhibition, Rembrandt #nofilter will continue through to January 2020.
The two photos are Rembrandt on a Dutch chocolate bar and the real self-portrait through the window on a winter's evening.
