Self Portrait with a Grey Felt Hat

From just 49 USD From just 149 USD
Due to the fact that Vincent van Gogh didn't have any money to hire models to pose for him he often painted himself. He painted this self-portrait in the winter of 1887-1888 when he was living with his brother Theo in Paris during almost 2 years. He made use of the painting technique pointillism, however, in his own way. Pointillism is a painting technique that Van Gogh learned when working in the studio of Fernand Cormon. By using strokes Van Gogh created a sort of halo around his head. This dynamic way of working was new to the art of painting and this portrait is a great example of this and also was a start to many more pieces painted in this way.
