This talk series looks at Self Portraiture from the Middle Ages to the Present and is presented thematically rather than chronologically. It will examine not only the self portraits themselves, but the psychology and biography of the artists and other work by them. It also introduces aspects of socio-economic conditions, culture and philosophy.
Themes are as follows, though the order may change:
VICTIMS, MIRRORS, ARTISTS AT WORK, WOMEN ARTISTS, SAINTS, DISGUISES, PHOTOGRAPHIC SELF PORTRAITS, SCULPTURAL SELF PORTRAITS, REMBRANDT, GUSTAVE COURBET, WILLIAM ORPEN, LOVIS CORINTH.
