Self-Portrait

  • Michael Brenner, Self-Portrait, modeled 1940, bronze, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Mrs. Fannie T. Brenner, 1980.63

Luce Center Label

Michael Brenner's Self-Portrait is similar to his other portrait heads, "gouged out" of the materials with intense concentration. Here, Brenner gives himself a furrowed brow and severe expression. His sharp features and the rough, unfinished surface express the force of the artist's creative energy.
