The close-up view of his own face in this pair of self-portraits is a dead giveaway of a cheap photo booth. The rapt attention and the fingers touching his mouth are a mannerism borrowed from the poses matinee idols struck in the 1940s. The colors are chosen with pure indulgence. Despite those affectations, the artist allows us a glimpse of himself as an intensely private individual who hides behind his public persona.
