Self Portrait as a old man

ALEXIS PRELLER

PORTRAIT AS AN OLD MAN
1950
Oil on Canvas
60.5 X 50.5cm

Alexis Preller rarely painted himself apart for two other self portraits. His Self portrait as an Old Man of 1950, painted 25 years before his death, depicts the wandering of the old self of the future Preller in a surreal world. A sense of time passed, carried by the symbolic representation of architectural antiquity, the barren tree the heavy clouded sky and the late setting sun.
