The Self-portraiture

Since the Renaissance, self-portraiture has been an art form in its own right, particularly appreciated by brilliant painters such as Rembrandt or Van Gogh. Using himself as model, the painter leaves his image to posterity, as in Durer’s “Self-Portrait in a Fur-Collared Robe” in Munich. It is as an artist that, armed with her palette, Madame Vigée-Lebrun wanted to portray herself. Look closely at these highly talented men and women: can you recognise them? Enjoy your visit!
