ELSHEIMER, Adam
(b. 1578, Frankfurt/Main, d. 1610, Roma)

Self-Portrait

1606-07
Oil on canvas, 64 x 48 cm
Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence

This is the only known portrait by Elsheimer. It is an admirable record of his appearance, although the conventional format gives little hint of the tremendous influence his pictures had, not only on his northern contemporaries, but also on the whole community of painters in Rome.
