Rembrandt exhibition: Alastair Sooke goes behind the scenes at The Late Works Rembrandt: The Late Works, showcases the artist's later works during a time in his life which was plagued by bankruptcy, acrimonious legal proceedings and bereavement.
The Telegraph's Alastair Sooke takes a look at Rembrandt's "obsession" with self portraiture, focusing on his mysterious painting Self Portrait with two Circles.
