Self Portrait
Ignace-Henri-Théodore Fantin-Latour

Fantin-Latour painted a number of self portraits in the years 1854-61 which were characterised by having summary backgrounds or no settings at all. In this example, one edge of an unframed painting is visible on the right, which has been tentatively identified as the portrait of Fantin-Latour's sister Marie (Birmingham City Art Gallery), which was rejected by the jury of the 1859 Salon.
