Un Air de famille : Self portrait & Selfie

Another “Air de famille” post, in which I try to connect paintings and pictures. Today is about a society phenomenon : “selfies” are everywhere so I thought I would do a quick post about “being selfish”. Without words. And I have to say, iphones (-and so on-) are not the best way to show off. It is more… amusing (ridiculous?) than anything else, don’t you think? I tried not to put any duck face cause it was just too much for my poor heart.



Self portrait by Chen Danqing (1953-) and anonymous selfie.



Self portrait by Egon Schiele (1890-1918) and Tom Hardy’s selfie.
