About Self Portrait

The artwork titled “Self Portrait” by Francisco Goya dates back to 1824 and is crafted using ink on paper. The piece falls under the Romanticism movement and is classified as a self-portrait. Modest in size, it measures merely 8.1 x 7 cm. Currently, this piece is housed in the Museo del Prado in Madrid, Spain, where it is part of the museum’s extensive collection.

Depicting the artist himself, the artwork is a detailed and intimate representation of Goya’s visage. The portrait captures Goya’s profile with remarkable clarity and precision, particularly given the small scale of the work. His facial features are rendered with firm lines that express character and a sense of gravitas. The cap hat he wears is depicted with textured strokes that suggest its fabric, and the shadows on his face are done in a way that provides a sense of depth to the image. Notably, Goya’s skill in encapsulating emotion and psychological depth is evident even at the diminutive dimensions of this portrait.
