Van Gogh; Self Portrait with Straw Hat and Pipe Postcard
Self-Portrait with Straw Hat and Pipe by Vincent van Gogh is a vintage fine art post impressionism daily life portrait painting featuring the artist..
Van Gogh created many self-portraits during his lifetime, he was a prolific self-portraitist, who painted himself thirty-seven times between 1886 and 1889. In all of these self-portraits one is struck that the gaze of the painter is seldom directed at us; even when it is a fixed gaze, he seems to look elsewhere. These paintings vary in intensity and color and some portray the artist with beard, some beardless, some with bandages; representing the episode in which he severed one of his ears.
