A self portrait by Rembrandt sold at a Sotheby’s virtual auction last night for $25 million USD; a record for a self-portrait by the Dutch master.
Sotheby’s says “Self portrait wearing a ruff and black hat”, which was painted in 1632, was sought by 6 dedicated bidders.
The last self portrait by Rembrandt at auction sold for just over $9 million USD in 2003.
