This self-portrait is usually dated 1892, but this is at best an approximation, for our only guide is the apparent age of the artist, who died prematurely in February 1894. In this painting, the facial expression is intense and stern. The absence of a white collar suggests this might be a portrait of the artist as a "boater," and in fact it was given to Joseph Kerbrat (note the unmistakably Breton name), who worked for Caillebotte as a "sailor". Indeed, it was at the helm of his sailboat that the artist depicted himself in one of his last works, dated 1893.
