Rembrandt has painted and engraved more than a hundred of his portraits. Early self-portraits in the etching technique mostly serve as studies of facial expressions. They are given certain titles based on a peculiar element that distinguishes them from the others. Most often it is a turn, a head-dress or a facial expression.
