Like many artists Mauricio Lasansky did self portraits throughout his long career. This portrait, done in 1961 when the artist was 47 used a number of different intaglio techniques. The portrait does nothing to glamorize or idealize the subject, who is depicted with a hat and turtleneck sweater pressing in on a simple face, two eyes, a nose and moustache and two large ears. A remarkably succinct image.
