Portraits

  1. 1. Self-Portrait (earlier known as Self-Portrait at Twenty-Eight Years OldWearing a Coat with Fur Collar orSelf-Portrait in a Wig) is a paintingon wood panel by the German artistAlbrecht Durer. Painted early in 1500,just before his 29th birthday, it is thelast of his three painted self-portraits.It is considered the most personal,iconic and complex of his self-portraits, and the one that hasbecome fixed in the popularimagination.The self-portrait is most remarkablebecause of its resemblance to manyearlier representations of Christ. Arthistorians note the similarities withthe conventions of religious painting,including its symmetry, dark tonesand the manner in which the artistdirectly confronts the viewer andraises his hands to the middle of hischest as if in the act of blessing. It islikely that Durer portrayed himself inthis way through a combination ofarrogance and a desire by a youngand ambitious artist to acknowledgehis talent as God given.
