Self-portrait, Johan Gregor van der Schardt, c. 1573

h 23.0cm × w 28cm × d 14cm. More details

To make this small bust – it is half life-size – the sculptor had to resort to all kinds of tricks with a mirror. Van der Schardt did not portray himself frontally, but with his head turned sideways, as if to avoid looking at the viewer. The nude upper torso alludes to sculpture from Classical antiquity.
