“I LIKE MY PORTRAIT, I CAN ACCEPT MYSELF LIKE THAT, there is nothing artificial about it; that is good and consoles me for my wrinkles. I don’t look stupid either, it seems to me. I particularly like the two different eyes, one lively and one self-denying–that really characterises me because that’s the way it always goes back and forth with me; here I’d like to press on with light in my eyes at some times as well–but the eye on the right of the picture already knows, knows better, how it will end.”
