1011 x 1280 • 226 KB
This is an image of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres.
Ingres' admiration for Raphael is very clear in this early self-portrait in which the position of the hands and the volume of the coat are modelled on the 'Castiglione' or the 'Donna Velata'. Ingres paints himself at his easel with immense pride, as if inviting the spectator to consider his High Renaissance lineage. This portrait was reworked in c.1850
