Self Portrait

Samuel Palmer, 1825

11 x 9 inch
“The subtle use of black and white chalk on buff paper creates a sense of varying light that enhances the work’s reflective quality. The drawing is remarkable for its directness and self-questioning and it is perhaps the most poignant of all self-portraits of the Romantic Era." (
