Self Portrait, 1962
Private Collection, UK
This early self-portrait, which has never been on the open market, is one of Claudio Bravo’s finest and most important drawings. It is a remarkably accomplished self-portrait for a 21 year old and shows his total self-belief and the confidence of youth. The attention to detail shows his love of and debt to early Renaissance portraiture.
The drawing was given as a gift to the owner of the drawing in 1962.
