Taras Shevchenko painted many self-portraits and also depicted himself as a figure in a number of other works. These self-portraits and self-depictions offer another view of Shevchenko's creativity, of his projected self-image, and of his personality. The images collected here were scanned from printed sources, as identified below. No claim is made for the accuracy of the color reproduction or for the completeness or even significance of this selection.
By far the best published collection of Shevchenko's artwork is in the last four volumes of the Complete Collection of Shevchenko's works in 10 volumes that appeared in 1961 - 1964. (Please note, this edition is not the best source for his poetry and written works but, for want of a better edition, it is the best collection of his artwork.) The four volumes have been reproduced on-line in their entirety at the Izbornik web archive: http://izbornyk.org.ua/.
