Question
Photo of Rembrandt
Photo of Rembrandt  
I have a self portrait print(I believe)of Rembrandt.  My grandmother said it has to be over 100 years old.  I have done little research and the only thing that I have found close to this is it looks like it came from "Rembrandt ans Sasika in the scene of the Prodigal Son in the Tavern.  I was hoping you tell me a little more information on it.  If it is just a copy or what.  I have not taken it out of the frame, nor do I think my grandmother did.  The frame itself is quite old.

Answer
Hi Jacquie, I believe this piece to be a reproduction of a Rembrandt painting. Rembrandt's works were made in the 17th century, and restrikes and reproductions were made thereafter. So this could still be quite old.

If you want a more exact appraisal, I recommend contacting Christies http://christies.com/ or Sothebys http://www.sothebys.com/ auction houses.

I hope this helps. Sincerely,

Andrew Evans
