"Rembrandt at 34" Coming to Norton Simon

This winter the National Gallery, London, will lend a famous Rembrandt self-portrait, never before shown in the U.S., to the Norton Simon Museum. Self Portrait at the Age of 34 (1640) shows the artist in Renaissance costume and swagger pose, in homage to Raphael.

The NSM will display it among its own paintings by Rembrandt and his school, including the Simon's own Rembrandt self-portrait of a few years earlier. The London painting will be on view in Pasadena Dec. 8, 2017—Mar. 5, 2018.
