Friday Favourites

Last Friday was a collection of self-portraits by men, this week we have women. Not as prolific and rather harder to source.

“I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, and because I am the person I know best.”                                                Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo

Tamara de Lempicka

Zinaida Serebriakova

Gwen John

Jenny Saville

Monica Cook

Mary Cassatt

Cecilia Beaux

Alina Osipov

Heather Horton

Again with these self portraits, how much of themselves do they share with us, what is kept hidden and what aspect of their personality do they wish to express. They are all rather sombre except the one of Zinaida Serebriakova.  She seems to be enjoying painting herself and is happy to share her enjoyment with the viewer.

I hope you have enjoyed this little portrait collection.

Have an awesome weekend.
