About this artwork

Beckmann's 1917 self-portrait reflects his despair during the later war years. According to the inscription he added in the upper-right corner, this brooding image was drawn at four o'clock in the morning. The artist's deep-set, blankly staring eyes are strangely quiet and contemplative compared to his quivering handling of the medium.
