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 Egon Schiele (1890-1918) and Tom Hardy’s selfie.
Self portrait by Zinaïda Serebriakova (1884-1967) and anonymous selfie.
Self portrait by Otto Dix (1891-1969) and Mads Mikkelsen’s selfie.
