John Sergeant ‘Reflections over a Portrait of Hubert Robert’ 1994 another #Selfportrait I commissioned from #johnsergeant again cleverly disguises more then it reveals. His #reflection merges with a #portrait of #hubertrobert by Jean Baptiste Isabey #isabey #jeanbaptisteisabey in my #collection. The #drawing is propped up on a #catalogue I #published in 1992 on #drawings related to #sculpture.

John Sergeant ‘Self Portrait’ 1995 I commissioned this #selfportrait by #johnsergeant which he fulfilled with the rather original #image of drawing himself in a mirror with his face covered by a #clock. Reflected are some of the #drawings on the walls still in my #collection . The #juggler balancing the clock on his head is holding a #visitingcard in his hand with my #initials facing front and #sergeants #signature on the back reflected in the #mirror. The sketch for it I just acquired at #florianhärb during @londonartweek_ #londonartweek #theartistatwork #katrinbellingercollection #artistselfportrait #mirrorimage #blackchalk #bluepaper #zappler

almost 20 years ago I commissioned the #artist John Sargeant to #design a #label for my #collection which I still use. I was delighted to find the preparatory #sketches in the #exhibition at #FlorianHärb @londonartweek_ . They #illustrate the long #creative #process which made him arrive at the #inspired idea to show a #trompeloeil of the back of a framed drawing. #katrinbellingercollection #katrinbellinger #londonartweek #creativeprocess #artistshands

Lorenzo Lotto: two presumed #Selfportraits of the #artist #lorenzolotto. The man wearing red in the #painting ‘The Alms of Saint Antonius of Florence’ 1540/42 is probably #lotto himself as his signature is just above his head and he is wearing a #laurelwreath an #allusion to his name. The #oilsketch on #paper possibly shows the #artist in old age according to an #inscription on the back. The #oilsketch was discovered by Aidan Weston-Lewis amongst the #anonymous #drawings at the #kupferstichkabinettberlin . You can admire both works @national_gallery in the beautiful #exhibition on Lotto’s #portraits. #spottheartist #cryptoportrait

Andrea Mantegna ‘Presentation of Christ in the Temple’ painted in the 1450’s features a likely #selfportrait of the #artist #andreamantegna on the right of the #composition. Could the #woman mirroring him on the left be a #portrait of his wife Nicolosia #Bellini ? The work could have been painted to #comemorate the #birth of their son in 1454. Another version painted by #mantegna ‘s brother in law #GiovanniBellini about twenty years later is exhibited alongside the #Mantegna in the #exhibition on both #artists @national_gallery #nationalgallery #mantegnabellini #italianrenaissance #painting

Egon Schiele ‘Self Portrait with Checkered Shirt’ 1917
another great #selfportrait #drawing in #watercolor #gouache and #blackcrayon. #Schiele twists himself into an interesting shape with his head tilted and the fingers of his left hand splayed in a typically mannered gesture. His right hand is not depicted as he is drawing himself in a mirror. He creates this image at the height of his career a year before he dies of the Spanish flue only 28 years old. #egonschiele #draughtsman #viennasecession #austrianart #findesiecle #viennamodernism

Egon Schiele ‘Self Portrait in yellow Waistcoat’ 1914 a great #selfportrait #watercolor by #EgonSchiele in the #exhibition #KlimtSchiele #drawings @royalacademyarts on loan from the @albertinamuseum in #Vienna. It is one of several #selfportraits by the artist in the show as #schiele frequently depicted himself whereas not a single self portrait by #GustavKlimt is known.

Vilhelm Hammershøi ‘Interior with an Easel, Bredgade 25’ 1912 a beautiful #stillness and subtle play of light characterise the #enigmatic #interiors of the #danish #painter #hammershøi . He is the last great painter in Danish #19thcentury #art rooted in the #danishgoldenage. An #engraving by C.A. Lorentzen of 1801 is hung high on the wall to protect it from the sun and is a reference to the teacher of a generation of danish #artists of the #goldenage. Despite the absence of people the space suggests the presence of the #artist with the door left open and the #easel turned away from the #viewer. The painting was sold @christiesinc #newyork a week ago for $ 5.000 000 after not having been on the market for a century. #artistspace #danishart

Jean Baptiste Camille Corot ‘Woman seated before an Easel, a Mandolin in her Hand’ 1860s all three #versions of this #theme of a #woman seated in front of an #easel with a #mandolin in hand are in the #exhibition Corot:Women @ngadc. The #show focuses on the lesser known aspect of #corot work as a #portraitpainter rather then his more famous #landscape #oevre. These #allegorical #studioscenes are a distinct group amongst his #femaleportraits mostly done in the 1860s. #corotwomen #ngadc #artiststudio #camillecorot #artistmodel #mandolin #girlwithamandolin #french #19thcentury #painter

Jean Baptiste Camille Corot ‘Self Portrait’ 1835 this #Corot #selfportrait the #artist #painted after his second visit to #Italy and he places himself against a wall wearing his white #painter frock keeping to #monochrome tones. He is depicting himself while #painting probably in a mirror as he is holding the #brush in his left hand and the #palette in his right.
The painting is one of 1.600 #selfportraits in the #collection of the @uffizigalleries #artiststwork #vasaricorridor

Honore Daumier ‘Le Liseur or Corot a la Ville-d’Avray’ 1866-1868 of course I like to think that this #watercolor depicts #Corot sitting on a bench #drawing in his #sketchbook in the dappled shade of the trees. The straw hat obscuring his face admittedly makes it quite hard to identify him so it might just be a man #reading. In any event it shows #honoredaumier #talent as a #watercolourist. The drawing comes from the #havemeyercollection @metmuseum #french #19thcentury #artistfriends #artistatwork #liseur #reading #peacefulmoment #dappledshade

this small #painting done early in #honoredaumier career as a #painter may portray the #printmaker #LouisLeroy and his #family gathered in the #artiststudio while he is at work seated by the window.
