The carnation in the painter's hand indicates that the self-portrait was painted for the occasion of marriage. There is a written, albeit later added, reference to it on the reverse of the panel: "Michael Ostendorfer, self-portrait as bridegroom." The portrait is reminiscent of portraits by Joos van Cleve.
