About this artwork

The smaller of two self-portraits in the collections by George Jamesone, this work depicts the artist without the occupational tools of a palette and set of brushes. Jamesone has portrayed himself in a manner similar to portraits he painted of his patrons - the merchants and academics of his hometown of Aberdeen and the nobility of the north-east. The portrait was restored by the painter John Alexander, the artist's great-grandson.
