p131 Self-Portraits by various artists

Rembrandt (1606-1669)

Rembrandt's collection of over 100 self-portraits charts 4 decades of his life. Many show dark clothing and backgrounds with light falling on the right of his face

Van Gogh (1853-1890)

In the self-portraits of Vincent Van Gogh, we can clearly see his famous style of working throughout his collection. However the subject's appearance varies in headshape, age and even face shape to a certain extent. The majority of his self-portraits show his right side more prominantly, with him looking slightly to the left although he does display other positions and angles in some of the studies.

I'm also reading a book about Lucien Freud's portraits, so will add info on this as I progress.

I will try to research more self-portraits as time allows.
