Rembrandt

An art expert told me that Rembrandt made so many ‘self portraits’ because he was ‘obsessed by his ego.’

I couldn’t disagree more. I think it was Rembrandt’s way of saying ‘look, I have to put food on the table, so I gotta cut some corners and give people some slack. Most don’t want to be portrayed “as is” but enhance the physical truth a little, you know, as in you photoshoppng models into supernatural beings. But when it comes to me, I finally have the means to tell the truth and show you my true talents. So, here I am… Take it or leave it.’
