Head of Christ
This is a reinterpretation of a work attributed to Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn and Studio, c. 1655. If you wish to see Rembrandt's version it's in the Bijbels Museum, Amsterdam. (http://www.bijbelsmuseum.nl/en/node/576). Ours may be seen at Highlands.
It's an unusual rendering of Christ's image because the model Rembrandt used was a Jewish man, most likely secured from the artist’s immediate environment.
