About Self-Portrait

The artwork titled “Self-Portrait” is an oil on canvas painting created by the artist Edward Hopper around 1903. The piece measures approximately 29.8 x 40.8 cm and is a notable example of the New Realism art movement. This particular self-portrait genre painting is housed within the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) in Boston, Massachusetts, United States.

The artwork presents a dark-toned portrait of Edward Hopper himself, rendered with the characteristic austerity and straightforward gaze that often inhabit Hopper’s oeuvre. His expression is pensive and somewhat introspective, with a slight shadow cast across his face, emphasizing the angular features and the intensity of his stare. The color palette centers around muted earth tones, contributing to a profound sense of solemnity and earnestness. Despite the painting’s modest size, the artist’s deft brushwork and psychological intensity imbue the work with a captivating presence.
