Self-Portrait (The Man with the Pipe)

I chose Self Portrait (The Man with the Pipe), 1849, by Gustave Courbet because i really liked the use of his shading. Using the lighter values for his face and the pipe made it stick out and i thought it was great. Overall, knowing that he did this piece shading with chalk was awesome and it made me interested to look at his other works.
