Self Portrait

Cézanne painted his own portrait on a number of occasions throughout his career. From his appearance here, this portrait is datable to about the time of Renoir's pastel portrait of him, dated 1880 (private). The wallpaper with its diamond pattern appears in a number of Cézanne's still lifes.
