Continental School, Early 19th Century
Self-Portrait
Graphite and pastel on paper
Image size: 14 x 11½ inches
Gilt frame



In this self portrait, dating from the early 19th century, the artist has chosen to depict himself resting his tousled head heavily on his left hand in a state of melancholic dishevelment, with an unbuttoned collar and distracted eyes. Melancholia has long been associated with creative genius and was therefore seen as a fashionable affliction amongst aspiring and creative young men, particularly poets and artists.
