Self-Portrait with Brushes

Hans Hofmann
  • Date: 1942
  • Style: Expressionism
  • Genre: self-portrait

Hofmann created many self-portrait drawings and paintings, usually depicting himself at work. Self-Portrait with Brushes is typical of his approach, yet it stands out in the way it combines styles to create an expressive character sketch.
