In the Visiting Artwork initiative, the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum welcomes works of art from museums around the world, creating unprecedented and sometimes unexpected dialogues with works from the permanent exhibition.
The first Visiting Artwork comes from the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid and was made by Rembrandt van Rijn ca. 1640.
Self-portrait Wearing a Beret and Two Chains is an example of one of the Dutch painter’s favourite themes – self-representation under different roles.
This work will be displayed in the room dedicated to Dutch painting, side by side with the two paintings by Rembrandt bought by Calouste Gulbenkian, Portrait of an Old Man and Pallas Athena.
