Self Portrait [Karl Oertel]
An impressionistic self-portrait by German artist, Karl Oertel (1890-1979). With broad loose brushstrokes, he’s captured his expression brilliantly. His left-hand is poised over his palette as he looks towards us through large purple spectacles. His pink shirt is topped off with a blue cravat and his jacket is slightly crumpled.
Oertel studied in Karlsruhe and later attended The Academy of Arts.
