Artist's Self Portrait

Jean Despujols toured Southeast Asia in the 1930s. This self-portrait was painted in French Academic style during the final third of his journey through Indochina and is a romanticized image of the artist. He depicts himself in this self portrait as an adventurous traveler, with pith helmet and a pipe, surrounded by an exotic mountainous landscape.
