« Seeing ourselves in a mirror allows us to confront our image as it is. But to represent ourselves on a canvas is to paint the image we have of ourselves, sometimes far from reality... »

In this exhibition, which is the first part of the exhibitions organised for the museum's 10th anniversary, discover how modern artists have dealt with the subject of self-portraiture. Bonnard of course, but also Cézanne, Chagall, Tal Coat, Denis, Goetz, Matisse, Picasso, Poliakoff, Roussel, Van Dongen, Vuillard and many others... Paintings that reveal the physical features of the artists and bring a moral and psychological dimension to the subject of self-portraiture. Is it a question of introspection, of presenting oneself to the world, of personal work? Whatever the case, they all try to answer one and the same question: "who am I? Much more than a simple pictorial representation, the self-portrait is a matter of intimacy and morality. An exceptional exhibition, with the support of the Musée d'Orsay.
