Autoportrait aux sept doigts, 1912

Self-Portrait with Seven Fingers (Russian: ??????????? ? ????? ????????), is a painting made by the Russian painter Marc Chagall in 1912-1913.

Several of his paintings bear the stamp of his memories of Vitebsk and, more broadly, of Russia (Moi et le village, À la Russie, aux ânes et aux autres, Dédié à ma fiancée).
