Self Portrait

MORRIS, Sir Cedric (1889 - 1982)

Self Portrait

Date: 1919

Media: oil on board

Size: 38.0 x 27.9 cm

Acquired: 1985; Purchase

Accession Number: NMW A 2156

Morris was born at Sketty near Swansea, into a family of prominent industrialists. In 1914 he started studies in Paris which were interrupted by the First World War. One of the artist's earliest paintings, this self-portrait was executed after his move in 1919 to Newlyn in Cornwall. It is unclear if the landscape at top right represents a view through a window or a painting hanging on the wall.
