Hals, Singing Boy with Flute
Self-Portrait is an oil on canvas self-portrait by the Venetian painter Titian, dated c. 1546-57. While he is known to have painted a number of independent self-portraits in various formats, this is one of only two painted examples to survive. The other is in Madrid, dated c. 1560. Both share a somber and reserved pallet, although this example is richer in tonal variation and colour harmonisation.
