List of self-portrait artists

The photographers/artists who did self-portraits and whose style I want to try and study or emulate are:

1. Francesca Woodman
Interestingly, Woodman listed Duane Michals as one of her influences because of his blurring and use of handwriting on his pictures. Michals is the photographer I chose to study for the picture of our classmate Mary and the burned building.

2. Rembrandt
I want to try and explore the use of light like the 1628 Self-portrait of Rembrand as a Young Man at 22. The early Amsterdam Self-portrait is most likely an instance of Rembrandt using himself as a model for a study of expression and light.

3. Paula Modersohn-Becker
Paula Modersohn-Becker was a German painter and one of the most important representatives of early expressionism. I really like the self portrait of her using a mask.

4. Andy Warhol
I really like the simplicity of his self portraits.

5. M. C. Escher
Maurits Cornelis Escher, created unique and fascinating works of art that explore and exhibit a wide range of mathematical ideas.
