William Utermolen

William Utermolen drew mostly self portraits and to begin with they were completely figurative. His late self portraits documented his descent into Alzheimer's disease. He represents his feelings about his condition with remarkable clarity presenting his sadness, anxiety and even anger at the loss of some of his basic functions.
