His today greatly renowned Myself: Portrait - Landscape of 1890 depicts the then new way of the artist’s perception and reflects the artistic confidence of the painter. He presents himself as a serious man with a palette in his hand featuring the names of his first wife Clémence and his second wife Joséphine. The Eiffel Tower as well as the balloon in the sky are attributes that celebrate modern civilisation but within the painting mainly they underline the self-confident stance of the artist.
