Nast Self-Portrait

In this self-portrait, Nast peers thoughtfully at a blank canvas, leaning away to take in the full size. In his left hand, a palette and brushes of different lengths, in his right a paintbrush hovers just above the palette. He is dressed in a three-piece suite, his hair cut closely and sporting his tell tale beard and moustache. This is just one of many self portraits Nast painted.
