Tonight's the night that Rembrandt's Self Portrait will be offered for sale at Sotheby's in London. Carrying an estimate of £12m - £16m, the eyes of the old master paintings world will surely be fixed on this event.

In the meantime, here is a guided tour of the upcoming sale with art historian Andrew Graham Dixon. Just goes to show that museums aren't the only arts venues where you can make a good video documentary.

Update - The Rembrandt made £12,600,000 (hammer price). More commentary to come after the sales...

Update 2 - Other curious news that several paintings have been withdrawn from the sale, including the Hals portrait and Verrocchio study on the old masters front.
