A Young Hare by Albrecht Durer
Your page has an error. It says that Albrecht Durer was the first artist to paint self-portraits, that is not correct. Please correct the error so as not to mislead students. Jean Fouquet's self-portrait (c. 1450 in other words 21 years before Durer was born and 34 years before his self portrait), a small picture created in gold on black enamel, is seen as "the earliest clearly identified self-portrait that is a separate painting, not an incidental part of a larger work." However, self-portraits are known to go back as far as the Amarna Period (c. 1365 B.C. ) of Ancient Egypt. Steve Revill
Thank you. I have made the correction.
