This early 20th-century self-portrait by H Schmandt (active 1919-1940) captures the artist in a daring mood.

Self-assured, smartly attired, and carefully coiffured, here’s a man brimming with confidence. Turning to his left, looking directly at the viewer, with a knowing expression that speaks volumes.

As a portraitist, the quickest way of demonstrating one’s draughtsmanship is via a skilfully rendered self-portrait. And given the diagonal signature across the arm, Schmandt was clearly proud of his work.

Signed lower right and held within a later glazed frame.
