/selfie fine art

I took hundreds of selfies trying to match the poses, expressions, moods, and styles of each artist's self-portrait. Using Photoshop and other digital tools, I melded  photography and fine art into a mashup of both. It took me hundreds of digital attempts and countless false starts to get what I wanted. Can you guess which painter's self-portrait was easiest for me to meld into my own?
