Albrecht Dürer. 'Self-Portrait', 1500. Oil on panel. 

Dürer's self-portrait visually appears incredibly accurate and precise, measured and centred as well as symmetric. This strongly portrays class and status suggesting that the artist hold himself to a high regard. 
The self-portrait features a stunning resemblance, hyperrealism and attention to detail, which shows how much dedication has gone into the work, and this has a lot to say about the artist's ego.
