From its origins in Medieval scriptoria to the compulsively repetitive images of Egon Schiele and Cindy Sherman, we study this important genre of painting.  What was the artist's intention? Self reflection a la Montaigne? The Status of the artist? Illustration of an aesthetic idea? Comments on society? Why do some artists paint so many "selfies" and other artists so few? Case studies include Durer, Caravaggio, Velazquez, Hogarth, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Edvard Munch, Picasso, Robert Arneson and Andy Warhol.
