Self portraits

If you enjoyed the Women in art video that I posted earlier, then you need no further encouragement. Here is a male counterpart, with the added twist that these are all self portraits. The same creator, Philip Scott Johnson, this time took 28 paintings, ranging from Da Vinci to Warhol, and let them once more morph slowly but irresistably from one to the other. The background music is Bach's Bouree 1 and 2 from Suite for Solo Cello No. 3, 1009 performed by Antonio Meneses - again, a fantastic choice. Marvellous video art.
