Portraying himself as a fashionably dressed Parisian, van Gogh tried his hand at a new and colorful style of French painting employing bold brush strokes and bright colors. The Dutch artist painted himself instead of a paid model over 30 times, believing it helped him develop his skills as an artist. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its bold brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. With bas-relief organic styling, the multi-tiered, replica European style frame is cast in quality designer resin and highlighted with an aged gold-toned finish.
  • About The Artist

      Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890)
      As one of the leaders of the post-impressionist movement Vincent Willem van Gogh's art represents the idea of emotional spontaneity in painting. Famous van Gogh paintings such as Starry Night and Self Portrait have served as a major influence on scores of other artists.

      Born March 30 1853 in Groot-Zundert Denmark he often presented a moody impatient disposition that would be the downfall for most of his professional pursuits. Early van Gogh paintings reflect on his time as an Evangelical preacher in Belgium where he ministered among the miners at Wasmes.

      Van Gogh's brother Theo an art dealer encouraged Vincent to move to Paris in early 1886. It was here that impressionism would begin its influence and shaper later van Gogh paintings. Inspired by the impressionists and other artists such as Paul Gauguin van Gogh began to experiment with the current techniques that would later leave a lasting mark on the art community.

      In 1888 van Gogh moved to the town of Arles in southern France. It was during this period that he began to use the swirling brush strokes and intense yellows greens and blues associated with works such as Arles les Irises and Sower With a Setting Sun. All visible phenomena whether painted or hand-drawn seemed to be infused with a physical and spiritual strength that can be seen throughout many van Gogh paintings.

      During this enthusiastic time for van Gogh he persuaded fellow artist Paul Gauguin to join him in Arles. Two months after Gauguin's arrival the two artists began to have violent arguments one of which culminated in van Gogh threatening Gauguin with a razor. Later that night van Gogh sliced off part of his own ear in remorse over the threat. Subsequently.
