Portrait often gives deep insight, and offers an analysis that goes far beyond the superficial. Mostly depicted by facial expressions it is described you and your personality. It can be direct or indirect. Portrait or self-portrait reflects the human expressions and feelings. The self portrait is a projection of the self. It is a reflective physical appearance.
Self- portrait delve deep into psyche, complex personality, strong emotions, a chronicle of circumstances through life. Artists captured people’s inner and outer expression which comes out through their facial expressions. Mostly artists gazed into the mirrors and attempted to grasp their identities.
In general, there are three ways to tell the difference between a portrait and a self-portrait. One of the best ways to understand a self-portrait is through its title. Artists will often identify their self-portraits as such. Another strategy is to notice what type of action is being depicted. Both self-portraits and portraits often depict a figure gazing in the direction of the artist.
A self-portrait will often depict the artist at work in the process of painting their own image. The third way is to view the picture in the context of the artist's other works. The artist's subject matter can convey to the viewer the identity and character of his or her own image. For example, American artist Norman Rockwell's Triple Self-Portrait shows the first and second of these principles.
