Renaissance Self-Portraits

It was said in the AA315 café forum, that it was hoped that the portrait painting of Leo was authentic, as it was really how they’d imagined him to be (see article: Portrait of Leonardo da Vinci discovered in Basilicata) but they were duly informed not to get their hopes up by the conference moderator at the time.

In terms of self-portraits, the only Renaissance period one I’d rate as “damn, its no wonder an artist had such a colourful reputation!!”, would be Giorgio Barbarelli da Castelfranco (c. 1477-1510), and pictured here’s why:

Giorgione

Enough said.
