re: Goofy European self-portraiture -- Luis Egidio Meléndez (Spain) looks very haughty in his (he did paint some exquisite still-lifes). Joseph Ducreux (France) caught himself yawning, which must have been exhausting in that pre-photographic era. Ducreux also painted himself pointing jauntily directly at us, decked out in a fancy hat and cane... Google 'Leopold Boily self-portrait' for some fun... And for something contemporary, Google 'iso 500 creative self portraits'.
