See how many a pretty thing

I always from a cube can bring:

Chair and sofa, bench and table,

Desk to write on when I’m able,

All the household furniture,

Even baby’s bed I’m sure;

Not a few such things I see;

Stove and sideboard here can be.

Many things, both old and new,

My dear cube brings into view;

So my cube much pleases me,

Because through it so much I see.

PEDAGOGICS OF THE KINDERGARTEN

By FRIEDRICH FROEBEL

About the Project:

Its a rare artist that hasn’t at one time or another attempted a self-portrait. Sometimes its for the most obvious reason, that in painting himself he has a ready, willing and free model. At other times artists may use self-portraits to advertise their skills, practice their craft, explore some inner turmoil or stake a place in history. Whatever reason the artist might think he had for the painting though, with art as with writing, the act of creation always reveals something about the creator.
