♦️ Self-portrait♦️⠀

👨‍🎨By: Rembrandt⠀

📍Location: metmuseum ⠀

📚 The Altman portrait is dated 1660, when he was fifty-four years old. This was a year of anxiety for him. He had just been declared bankrupt. He saw his collection of art treasures disposed of at auction and himself deserted by his pupils and his friends, with no studio of his own in which to set up his easel. In this portrait we have a work of mature years, when he brought all the skill and resources of a lifetime to its creation. The lift of the eyebrows that wrinkle his forehead is that of whimsical impatience, yet the spark in his eyes denies defeat.⠀

Страшно?

Недавно я узнала, как немного приглушить свой страх. Например, страх начать что-то новое 😳

Мне оказалось очень полезно, решила поделиться с Вами😉

📌Представьте, что этот страх воплотился в жизнь. Что с этим делать? Что-то прям плохое случилось? Нет? Тогда чего бояться?

📌Представьте, что Вы поддались своему страху и не сделали что-то... Например, не купили какой-нибудь крутой обучающий курс, побоявшись расстаться с последними сбережениями. Где Вы будете через год? В этой же точке? Или курс даст Вам толчок к развитию себя и своего дела?

Мне очень помогают эти два пункта😜

Знали о таких методах? Может, сами что-то из этого используете?

Rembrandt seems to be a popular subject or model to be drawn by his students. This one was probably painted by Isaac de Jouderville. It was sold in an auction to a private anonymous buyer for about 650 000. If its from Isaac de Jouderville then its probably most expensive painting ever sold. I don't expect tip see this painting in public for the next 20 years. If you are the buyer, then prove me wrong and show it to us 🙂

You best believe I was up bright and early and at the Rijksmuseum when the doors opened in order to get a good look at Rembrandts Night Watch, without all the crowds!
.
The Night Watch is the peak of Dutch Golden Age painting (completed in 1642) and is a group portrait of a militia company. It’s real title is ‘Militia Company of District II under the Command of Captain Frans Banninck Cocq, also known as The Shooting Company of Frans Banning Cocq and Willem van Ruytenburch’ - but that’s a bit of a mouthful, so it was nicknamed Night Watch in the 18th c as the varnish had darkened over time, leading people to think it was a night scene. The dark varnish was removed in the 1940s
