Self Portrait by Umberto Boccioni Self Portrait by Umberto Boccioni

Artist: Umberto Boccioni (1882 – 1916)

Nationality: Italian

Completion Date: 1905

Style: Impressionism

Genre: Portrait

Media: Oil on canvas

Location: Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City

This Self-Portrait demonstrates Boccioni’s style as a student at the Academy in Rome. Although it differs greatly from his mature Futurism, being far softer in its tone and brushwork, he cherished the picture and never sold it during his lifetime. It is typical of the period when he was moving from a style inspired by early Impressionism to a more volumetric approach suggested by study of works by Paul Cézanne.
