500 Years of Self Portraits

Last weekend on this site, I posted a video, Women In Art,  of  500 years of portraiture of women, morphing gracefully one into the other.  The same person responsible for that video, Phillip Scott johnson,  has also produced a video of self portraiture through the years.   i thought it might be a nice companion piece to Women In Art.

I find the sections where multiple paintings of an artist, Rembrandt, for an example, show the evolution of the artist through the years.  As each image changes it almost gives the subject an animated quality.

Hope you’ll enjoy!
