Autoritratto (Self-portrait)


signed Severini and dated MCMV (lower left)

pastel and charcoal on paper

34 by 30.7cm., 13 3/8 by 12in.

Framed: 75 by 71.7cm., 29 1/2 by 28 1/2 in.

Executed in 1905.

Executed on cream wove paper, not laid down, attached to the mount intermittently along all four edges, and floating in the overmount. There are artist's pinholes to the upper and lower left corners, three pin-sized holes to the right part of the upper edge, and one to the right part of the lower edge. There are some tiny paper losses to the upper and lower left corners, and some creases in places, the most prominent of which are a horizontal one running across from the upper part of the left edge and a diagonal one running up from the lower left corner. There are a few very minor surface scratches and the sheet is slightly undulated in places. This work is in overall very good condition.
