About Self Portrait

Piet Mondrian’s “Self Portrait” from 1900 is an oil on canvas painting with dimensions of 50.4 x 39.7 cm. It is an example of the Impressionist movement and is currently housed in the Philips Collection in Washington, DC, US. The artwork is composed primarily of a self-portrait genre.

The painting features a close-up view of the artist himself, looking directly at the viewer. Mondrian’s face is centrally positioned, with a thoughtful and serious expression. The brushwork is loose and expressive, capturing the nuances of light and shadow that play across his features. The color palette is relatively muted, with warm tones of brown, ochre, and cream dominating the canvas. The artist’s gaze is intense and engaging, creating a sense of personal connection with the viewer. This early work differs significantly from Mondrian’s later, more famous abstract compositions, but it provides a glimpse into his artistic development and his skill in more traditional portraiture.
