Lot Essay

Arthur Segal, born in 1875 in Romania, moved to Berlin in 1892 where he joined the Kunstakademie. First influenced by the landscapes of Segantini he rapidly moved from a pointillist technique to a neo-impressionist style more in keeping with Vincent van Gogh with slightly longer, more detailed brushstrokes.
Together with Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Arthur Melzer, Max Pechstein, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Georg Tappert and others he founded the Neue Secession. In their first exhibition in 1910 he contributed five paintings. The present self-portrait was one of these five exhibited works and was illustrated in the exhibition catalogue.
