We usually look on self-portraits as composite sketches of the painters who drew them. In other words
we consider that ""self-portrait = painter (or reflection of a painter’s attitude of mind)"" . Nonetheless
self-portraits do not always give accurate images of the painters themselves
as is clear from my description of the self-portraits mentioned above.
