The Self-Portrait (ca. 1855–56) by Edgar Degas is a painting that showcases the artist's self-depiction in a realistic and unconventional manner. The painting features Degas standing in front of an easel, holding a brush in his right hand and gazing at the viewer with a contemplative expression. The background is sparse, with only a few visible brushstrokes on the canvas, giving the impression that Degas has just begun to paint his own portrait. This creates a sense of intimacy as the viewer is given a glimpse into the artist's creative process. Degas' self-portraiture in this painting is notable for its lack of flattery or idealization, which was often the norm during the 19th century. Instead, the artist portrays himself as an ordinary man engaged in his work, emphasizing the authenticity and honesty of the artistic experience. Overall, Degas' Self-Portrait is a powerful representation of the artist's dedication to realism and his pursuit of capturing the true essence of human experience through his art.
