About Rembrandt

On 15 February 2019 PostNL will issue a sheet of Rembrandt at the Rijksmuseumpostage stamps. Each sheet contains five stamps and features two quintessential etchings by the 17th-century Dutch master Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669): Self-portrait in a Fur Cap(1630) and Self-portrait Wearing a Soft Cap(ca. 1634). The stamps are being issued to mark the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death in 2019. The Rijksmuseum is celebrating the anniversary of the artist’s death with a major exhibition that includes both self-portraits. The sheet of Rembrandt at the Rijksmuseumpostage stamps costs € 4.35. The stamps were designed by Irma Boom, a Dutch graphic designer working in Amsterdam.
