Self-Portrait (1892). Anna Bilińska-Bohdanowicz (Polish, 1857-1893).
Self-Portrait was unfinished. The natural ease of the pose, a modesty of the attire, the attributes of the painter’s profession held in the hands and finally the open, bold look on the face, which conveys firmness and strength of character - clearly express the artist’s intention to present herself as an artist, who knows her worth, and as a woman, who has freed herself from the restrictions of the the era’s conventions.
