Giorgio Szoldatics trained with his father Ferenc, a Hungarian painter who specialised in religious subjects. As a successful portrait painter of high society, he frequented some of the most influential artists of the time, and his friends included Giacomo Balla. In this self-portrait he portrays himself in profile with his mouth slightly open: it is an unconventional pose with clear allusions to Balla. The work was donated by Szoldatics to the Academy a few years after his nomination as accademico di merito residente in the class of painters, which took place in 1919, and is one of a series of self-portraits made by the artist over the course of his career.
