This is Dr. Seuss’s 1964 painting, Self-Portrait as a Young Man Shaving. Ted, who lived in a New York City apartment in the 1930s, portrays himself as a modern man who uses an electric shaver. Apparently, he also kept a “shaving file” filled with ideas and concepts that came to him while shaving. Photographs verify that his stance here at the sink mirrors his stance at the easel.
