The 15 cm by 20 cm painting, signed and dated 1632 by the great Flemish master, represents him at the age of 26 in ceremonial dress, dressed in black with a felt hat and a large lace collar white.

The painting was not authenticated until 1996, after an analysis having shown that it had been made on the same oak wood as the support of a portrait made by Rembrandt of his friend Maurits Huygens.

According to George Gordon of Sotheby's, the formal attire, unusual among the artist's dozens of self-portraits, suggests that he may have wanted to show himself in his best light as he courted the one who would become his muse and his wife, Saskia van Uylenburgh, to convince his parents that he was a good match.

Produced just after moving to Amsterdam, the painting could also serve as a business card and show potential clients the painter's flourishing situation.

According to Mr. Gordon, it was completed in a very short time, as the background had not yet finished drying when the artist signed.

With a calendar turned upside down by the pandemic of the new coronavirus, Sotheby's has decided to hold a single evening sale bringing together more than 500 pieces from all eras, from old masters to contemporaries.
