A self portrait gives the viewer clues to the personality and life of the artist. What does each of these self-portraits give you about the artist's self-image? 

By comparing the information in their short biographies with each of their self-portraits, the viewer can see which side of a personality or which aspects of a life each artist tried to portray.
