nectarhoff: Painting Paint

Painting Paint

Frédéric Bazille, Self-Portrait, 1866. Oil on canvas, 108.9 x 71.1cm.

This painting hangs in the Art Institute of Chicago. Each time I see it I have the same thought--It must have felt peculiar for Bazille to paint paint on canvas. It reminds me of the famous painting by René Magritte: 

René Magritte, La Trahison des Images, 1929. Oil on canvas, 63.5 x 94cm.
