Simon Bus: “Self-portrait, man on orange floor”
The Netherlands played an important part in the development of the art of self-portraiture that came about during the Renaissance. It is suspected that Jan van Eyck who worked in The Hague until 1425, painted a self-portrait with the work Man with red turban.
In Self-portrait, man on orange floor, Simon Bus approaches self-portrait art from the perspective of dance. With a floor of 2 by 2 meters as a canvas, he portrays himself in poses and movements that fluctuate between his ideal self-image and a caricature.
