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.

Finding similarities between a picture and a painting can be like a time travel ; crossing the line between art and reality is sometimes quite interesting.

André Devambez (1867-1944) from a portrait of the painter’s children and Pio Marmai, french actor. Manhood position hello!

Hans Christiansen (1866-1944), Portrait of a young man and Pierre Niney, french actor. Both so delicate.

AQUARIUS COLLECTION

Monet (1840-1926), La Femme à l’ombrelle and the english series Downton Abbey. It is not obvious but when I saw this picture of the three girls, the light shades and the texture of the dresses made me somehow think of this painting.

Tableau Monet Ombrelle Camille downtona

And finally, a self-portrait of Picasso (1881-1973) and a picture of Franz Kafka (1883-1924). I know they do not look alike but there is something about the eyes… Don’t you think?
