  • Support. Although I generally think that Google Art errs on the side of too little brightness (probably in an effort to avoid any glare off the paint texture), in this case it doesn't make much difference since most of the painting is basically white or light gray.

  • Support although he did tons of self-portraits, this seems to be the most suitable for the infobox, and is high quality. --ELEKHHT 12:51, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Support Though I'd be inclined to put it under paintings. Adam Cuerden (talk) 11:58, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
    • As this also serves as an example of the artist's work, that wouldn't be a travesty. J Milburn (talk) 16:55, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
      • Aye, it's on the border between the two, but given his article has a photograph of him as well from about the same period, I'd lean towards considering the primary EV as painting. Adam Cuerden (talk) 00:46, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
