Self-portrait, Moses ter Borch, 1660 - 1661

oil on canvas, h 26.5cm × w 18cm × d 6cm More details

Moses ter Borch must have been barely fifteen years old when he recorded his features on this small canvas with all the skill of an experienced master. He peers out at us with the same searching gaze with which he looked at himself in the mirror. A ray of light grazes his young adolescent face framed by golden locks of hair.
