Genre & Material
Where can I find this in Berlin?
The pose of Anselm Feuerbach seems distanced, yet proud. The 44 year old painter is aware of his competence, since he finished two of his main pieces of art: the second version of “Platos Symposion” and “Amazonenschlacht”, in the same year he painted himself. He shows his confidence in himself in this painting. His clothing is simple, yet groomed. The plain grey background does not distract. It even enhances his face and appearance of the artist. He still manages to attract the observer with his classic facial expressions. His manner, hair and moustache almost seems aristocratic.
