50 Artists' Self-Portraits

Velázquez - Self-PortraitThe current exhibition at the Dulwich Picture Gallery is Artists' Self-Portraits from the Uffizi: Masterpieces from Velázquez to Chagall, which opened on Sunday and continues until 15 July 2007. All fifty exhibits have been borrowed from the Uffizi Gallery's Vasari Corridor to give us our first ever opportunity to view them in the UK. (If you haven't read Vasari's Lives of The Artists, do so. It is the source book for art historians, but don't let that deter you. Vasari's style is journalistic scandal mongering à la News of the World. Great fun.)
