Man For Himself on YouTube
Every painter paints himself , a saying first documented in the early Renaissance, has been mentioned by artists ever since. Both Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci used it, as Picasso did too; Lucian Freud and other contemporary artists still cite variations today. Yet despite its great significance to artists, art scholars rarely discuss the saying or its meaning. But why would a phrase that meant so much to great masters, and still does to their followers, require re-phrasing to mean anything? The truth is, as this website demonstrates, it is the images of these visual artists that are veiled, not their words. Read More Read Less. Despite everything you have ever heard about art Every painter paints himself is the underlying principle of great art since at least the Renaissance and probably before. That is why both Michelangelo and Leonardo dissected corpses, breaking the law in the process. They were searching inside for the secrets of Creation and the cosmos.
Almost all these hidden themes few ever seen before hark back to the idea that every painter paints himself. One of the most common is the depiction of the artist holding his or her art. This explains why the head of the victim is often a self-portrait. There is also an obvious pun in Italian on the word for masterpiece, capolavoro , which literally means head-work. In other cases, especially in the nineteenth century, the background may defy perspective, seemingly flat or vertical and thus indicating its existence in the studio as a flat, upright canvas. Capolavoro was first used in Italian literature around though is likely to have been used in speech before then. A head separated from a body, though, could have been used to symbolize the artist's artwork long before then because the concept that all art is a depiction of the artist's mind was already widespread in the early Renaissance.
