Two of the works featured in the IMA’s Face to Face: The Neo-Impressionist Portrait (opening June 15) would be right at home on social media. Here, a quick snapshot of the exhibit’s only self-portraits.
Self-Portrait by Vincent Van Gogh 1887
The brooding Dutchman painted a lot of these, mostly because he had no money for models and refused to base paintings on imaginative scenes (although you’d never know it by viewing Starry Night).
Self-Portrait in a White Beret by Achille Lauge 1895
To the extent that Lauge is familiar at all, the French artist is known for his Impressionist landscapes. But he did leave behind a few images of himself, like this jaunty one that’s more hat than head.
