'Self Portrait Age 60 on Paper no.4'

22″ x 30″ (56 x 76cms) acrylic on paper 2013.

Self portraits in Chris Gollon’s oeuvre are extremely rare. He very occasionally put himself in his paintings, such as those from the Don Quixote series or casting himself as Judas in a religious work. In general, he tended to do one or two every 10 years or so; but in his 60th year, he decided to do a series, five on canvas and this one from a series of 11 on paper.
