Neue Galerie: The Self-Portrait, From Schiele to Beckmann
The Self-Portrait, From Schiele to Beckmann
In this exhibition film for Neue Galerie directed by Jonathan Sanden, curator Tobias G. Natter takes us through half a century’s worth of German and Austrian self-portraitures by artists pushing the boundaries of the format.
Admired for their revelatory nature, self-portraits yield insight into both the appearance and the essence of the artist, in some cases providing almost confessional portrayals, sharing profound insights regarding their self-image as a maker, and their perceived relationship to society.
