Description"Head with Swan (Self Portrait) show Wunderlich's fascination with dream imagery and fantastical realism. The print is titled a self-portrait, though it shows a clear departure from reality. The swan sits on the top of the subject's distorted floating head, leaving a billowing cloud that echoes the shape of the central element.
