#museummonday "Self-Portrait of My Sister"
Gertrude Abercrombie, 1941
From the plaque: "On first glance, 'Self-Portrait of My Sister' appears to be a relatively straightforward representation, lacking the idiosyncratic imagery of her complex, dreamlike works. But Abercrombie was an only child, and the title's allusion to a sister heightens the paradox of the painting. She frequently used self-portraiture as a means of trying on new guises and personas, later observing, 'It's always myself that I paint, but not actually, because I don't look that good or cute.' Indeed, in her records she referred to this work as 'Portrait of Artist as Ideal.' Her reference to a fictitious and prettier sister hints at a desire to be a different person, a longing she could satisfy through her painting." #artinstitute , #chicago
