An early work by Ludovic Alleaume, this striking Self-Portrait may be dated to c.1880-1885. Much later in date are series of eight amusing self-portrait drawings, showing him with different styles of beard or none at all, executed in 1917 and today in the collection of the Musée du Vieux-Château in Laval.
