Self-portrait, Karel Dujardin, 1662

Self-portrait, Karel Dujardin, 1662

oil on copper, h 28.5cm × w 22cm. More details

Making a small bow, courtly and courteous, Dujardin introduces himself with this elegant self-portrait. Painted with flair and precision, the likeness has the air of a calling card, a demonstration of the artist’s skill. And, indeed, Dujardin received several commissions for portraits from Amsterdam’s elite.
