A self-portrait as a transposition of the portrait of Henri Matisse by his friend André Derain.

A reinterpretation as a digital self-portrait of the Fauvist portrait of Matisse, painted in 1905 by his friend Derain.

It is, of course, quite conceited to put yourself in the same league as Matisse and Derain. I would never dare to do that, but I did try to 'digitize' their ideas from a century ago.
I largely followed the color palette of the original, but translated the fauvist brushstrokes into a digital geometric tessellation. And I replaced Matisse's face with mine - very vain!

Original by Derain: 46 x 35 cm, oil on canvas
Original transposition: 50 x 70 acrylic paint on paper.

Thanks to Andrew and Fadi for your interest in my works and your offers! FYI, the current offer is about the cost for minting the work on MP. I won't "reject" the offer , because I do appreciate your first offers and interest for my work. I cannot accept your offer either, though...
