    Icon Broken Brush Strokes Self Portrait

    I have a small research assignment for an upcoming oil portrait and I wanted to get some advice. We are supposed to get a self portrait by an artist that uses broken brush strokes style.

    Thats pretty simple. I could just grab Van Gogh or any of the other many impressionistic artists. But I really wanted to move beyond the stereotypical examples and delve deeper into a more unusual example.

    Can anyone give me some examples of self portraits that use broken brush strokes? Any artists names? Yes there is the normal vanguard of famous artists, but what about artists working alive today? Or maybe outside the typical period.

    I was thinking about Rembrants later work, but my teacher said while it was good, the paint application was a little thick for what he wanted to show us

    I've never heard of the term, "broken brushstrokes" but I assume you mean fleeting, quick strokes like the van gogh example? In that case Frans Hals is amazing at describing form with great economy of brush strokes.

    Here's one of his small portraits at the MFA in Boston. Sorry for the crummy photo - I didn't have a tripod.
