Me, Myself and My Audience

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter


We know that an artist's self-portrait depicts their self-image, but it is often less certain for whom the image is intended. A self-portrait communicates not just an artist's perception of themsleves, but the perception that they would like a wider audience to have of them - an image which reflects the social and professional aspirations of the artist. These elements are analysed in self-portraits by artists working in the 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st centuries including Sarah Lucas, Grayson Perry, Maud Sulter, Francis Frith and Elizabeth Vigee Lebrun.
