The self-portraits are remarkably similar to Franz Xaver Messerschmidt's "character heads" depicting extreme expressions.

Excellent, Ray, thanks! For examples of this work see http://www.johncoulthart.com/feuilleton/2006/06/23/the-art-of-franz-xavier-messerschmidt-1736-1783/ ALso the work of Rafael on the expression of emotions...and while we're at it, Darwin.

The image of the model in the unique position may come out of his architectural brilliance. Good architecture always intrigues the viewer and invites him to look around the next corner.
