Franz Ritter von Stuck

Franz Stuck (1863-1928) became Franz Ritter von Stuck when he was knighted in 1906 
for his contributions to the Bavarian art scene.  He had a very prolific and successful career, 
and was said to have been Adolf Hitler's favorite painter.  We don't really know what von 
Stuck's attitude was toward the Nazis because he died five years before they took power.  
The self portrait above is one of several he did, and like most of them, it is in profile.
