"Self-portraits are confessions of an inner state, they always come as a surprise to me. I look at them and think, why, that’s not what you look like at all. There is no objectivity there, only ceaseless transformation; a human being has so many facets. The self-portrait is the best means of studying them."
Otto Dix Quote
