Question
Have a 15 1/2 x 19"  self portrait of Rembrandt with the name Rembrandt Van Rijn/ Rembrandt dans son Atelier underneath.  L hand upper corner Hel.& Impr Maifenbach Riffarth Co.  R hand upper corner Uitgave van Lcheltema & Holkema's, Boekhandel, Amsterdam. Any background and price would be appreciated.  Thanks

Answer
Hello Glenn,  

Rembrandt created a number of etchings that were self portraits.  The work you have is definitely a reproduction and not an original print for Auerbach Riffarth Co was a famous printing company in Munich in the late 19th Century.  The other name is where it was framed and sold.  Your work is only worth $100 - 150 for it is not an original work of art.

Cheers, Brent
