Public domain ← → Self-Portrait Joshua Reynolds Date: c.1753 - c.1755 Style: Baroque Genre: self-portrait Media: oil, canvas Dimensions: 61.5 x 74 cm Location: Tate Modern, London, UK Tags: male-portraits, famous-people File Source: www.abcgallery.com References: www.tate.org.uk Order an oil painting reproduction Ad Image dimension 490x600px, View all sizes This self-portrait was probably painted soon after Reynolds set up a studio in London in 1753. He had spent the previous three years studying art in Italy. The personal connections and artistic ambitions Reynolds developed when he was abroad served him well. These years marked the beginning of a carefully-managed and hugely successful career. This self-portrait, which deliberately echoes famous images by Rembrandt, signals his artistic aspirations. Such posturing struck a chord with London’s fashionable and aristocratic society, who wanted portraits that would flatter their growing cultural pretensions.
