That is a good portrait, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Rembrandt was quite a master of the portrait.

I especially like the detail caught by Rembrandt in the helmet.
Tom Wilson: Quite fine, isn't it?

The quality & integrity of this shines out Tom
Tom Wilson: The original really glows!
Worth a fortune no doubt!
Tom Wilson: Millions, I imagine, Bill - one previously unseen portrait by R went for £20.2 million in 2009 smile

Athena looks like an ephebe, a young man, a wonderful painting I never saw before. "The figure is reminiscent of other works depicting Titus (b. 1641), the painter’s son, who may have posed for this work."
I wish you a happy, healthy new year!
Tom Wilson: You really must visit the Gulbenkian, Philine - the treasures there are amazing.
I agree with Alan, there is some fine detail in the helmet.
Tom Wilson: R knew what he was about, Brian smile
I could stare at this one for some time...
