Sooke on Rembrandt 'Selfies'

Video: Telegraph

Good video here from Alistair Sooke on Rembrandt's Kenwood House Self-Portrait. 

Update - a reader writes:

Excellent and interesting video from  Alistair Sooke on the Kenwood House Rembrandt self-portrait but why on earth did we need the intensely irritating violin playing in the background? Is this an attempt to distract us from the greatness of the art in case it is too much for us?
