Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn: 81 Self Portraits is a looped video artwork made by Dane Picard. In under 60 seconds, Picard presents a seamless montage of 81 self-portraits made by famed artist and portraitist Rembrandt van Rijn. One portrait morphs into the next, causing the viewer to make quick, sometimes subconscious, visual connections. The irony of Rembrandt: 81 Self Portraits lies in the juxtaposition of the age of the self-portraits themselves, with the digital technology used to create the artwork. Made in 2003, Rembrandt: 81 Self Portraits is the first video in a group of three that he made that year of composite portrait videos. Vincent van Gogh: 42 Self Portraits and Jules Engel: 100 Portraits, photographed during 12 minutes on 4/28/3 are two other video artworks which feature self-portraits, or regular portraits, of the subject.
