Project 6 Research point

I looked at some of the many self-portraits by Rembrandt – it inspired me to try many different expressions for my own self-portraits.  Rembrandt’s portraits are direct and truthful and have a sense of humanity  about them.rembrandt

I  found this self-portrait by Bonnard moving – the undefined features and stark colour create an emotional intensity.self portrait by Bonnard

Kirchner and Karl Schmidt -Rottluff are two Expressionist painters who have interested me for years. The Kirchner self-portrait with model has impact created by the colours and composition.Self-portrait with a model KirchnerAlso looked at Tracey Emin, Graham Little and Elizabeth Peyton among others. self portrait elizabeth peyton

The Tracey Emin portrait was amusing and showed her playing with expressions. This contrasted with the Graham Little highly skilled and atmospheric portrait.Tracey Emin portrait.jpg2nd of graham little
