    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;In trying to define a new artistic orientation after the First World War, in May 1919, Klee worked in a more concentrated fashion than ever before on self-portraits. The ensuing series of self-portraits includes the well known &lt;em&gt;Thinking Artist&lt;/em&gt;, &lt;em&gt;Feeling Artist&lt;/em&gt;, &lt;em&gt;Pondering Artist&lt;/em&gt;, &lt;em&gt;Creating Artist&lt;/em&gt; and &lt;em&gt;Absorption&lt;/em&gt;. In the present text, not only these works, which have been discussed in the Klee literature previously will be considered, but also the subsequently registerd works in Klees Œuvrelkatalog&lt;em&gt;, Mask&lt;/em&gt; and &lt;em&gt;Mister Sol&lt;/em&gt; and its verso image »self-portrait«, which can be regarded in an extended sense as allegories of the artist. Through a comparison of &lt;em&gt;Absorption&lt;/em&gt; to &lt;em&gt;Mister Sol&lt;/em&gt;, as well as the verso image »self-portrait«, it will be shown how Klee deepened the exploration of his self and how he visualized this. This analysis of the recto-verso picture &lt;em&gt;Mister Sol&lt;/em&gt; throws a new light on the understanding of the series of self-portraits of 1919.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
