Self Portrait 18801884 by Helene Schjerfbeck

"Helene Schjerfbeck (1862-1946) painted at least 36 self-portraits throughout her career. The older she became, the more isolated she became. Her later portraits reveal a sort of visual confrontational self-analysis. Between 1939 & 1945, not long before her death, she produced her most impressive series of self-portraits, in which she records her own physical deterioration with shocking intensity." http://bjws.blogspot.nl/2010/08/self-portraits-by-helene-schjerfbeck.html
