We just added 250 self-portraits to soaMDID, bringing our total up to around 700. The majority of these are paintings. To search for self-portraits, type “self portrait~” in the keyword field without the quotes. Using the tilde (~) tells the database to search for both “portrait” and “portraits” at the same time. You can add other terms to limit the search such as “drawings” (be sure it’s plural), a century (e.g., “20c” for 20th century), and/or a culture (e.g., “French” or “Chinese”). Add the terms without the quote marks. More information about using search terms is available in a document you can either download from the Announcements page when you log into soaMDID or here.
