“In reality however, every ego, so far from being a unity is in the highest degree a manifold world, a constellated heaven, a chaos of forms, of states and stages, of inheritances and potentialities. It appears to be a necessity as imperative as eating and breathing for everyone to be forced to regard this chaos as a unity and to speak of his ego as though it were a one-fold and clearly detached and fixed phenomenon. Even the best of us shares the delusion.”

– Herman Hesse (The Steppenwolf)

Craigie Aitchison did some art defacing to his self portrait.

Created in the late 1950s/early 1960s, the image was destroyed by the artist after a visitor to his studio called the portrait ‘flattering’.

Aitchison reacted to the perceived criticism by lacerating the painting.

The artist was known for his dislike of self promotion but was persuaded to let Martin Wyld, the head of conservation at the National Gallery, restore the painting. Aitchison agreed under the proviso that the scars would remain visible.
