'Portrait of an Artist', or...

What fun! [...] I found the BBC's site and clicked on "unknown artists" and got to page 4 before finding this gem [catalogued as 'Portrait of an Artist', by an Unknown Artist at the Atkinson Art Gallery in Southport]. I can't imagine why this isn't an autograph version of the Christian Seybold self portrait to be found in Leichtenstein (on copper) [below].
It's hard to assess from the above image whether it is by Seybold - is the mouth a little awkward? - but it's certainly of him! I'll try and track down a better photo.
