A Portrait of the Artist…

"Self-Portrait" (1910)

How appropriate that ICE is performing Schoenberg’s Chamber Symphony No. 1 (1906) at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art. The composer (b.1874- d.1951) was also active in the visual arts, creating a number of paintings and drawings. His work, including the self-portrait shown here, was displayed at the MCA in 1978 as part of their exhibit “Art in a Turbulent Era: German and Austrian Expressionism.” See more of his art here.
Just for comparison, check out this mugshot:
