Self-Portrait. 1939, cardboard, oil on canvas, 44×33, family property
The "Self-portrait" painted in 1939, is the earliest work of the portrait works of the painter. In accordant with the characteristics of the age, Isabekyan is looking at us with proud and masculine posture, with inner artistry in handsome appearance (features, head, neck) and with the depth of seeking self-identification. The self-portrait is endowed with restrained mood, and the bold black in his big eyes emphasizes his complex and strong character and powerfulness.
