Self-portrait, Jan Havicksz. Steen, c. 1670

oil on canvas, h 73cm × w 62cm. More details

A distinguished citizen dressed in decorous black is seated before a red curtain and tassel. Jan Steen, known primarily for his humorous scenes with simple folk, portrayed himself here as utterly self-assured. He also regularly included himself in other paintings, but then usually in a comic role.
