Artist's Description

This is a closer & untouched shot of Vincent Van Gogh’s 1889 Oil on Canvass Self Portrait that i took inside Musee D’Orsay in PARIS – FRANCE, last 2009.

ABOUT MY PHOTO:
Vincent Van Gogh is the greatest painter but his life was so tragic. During his lifetime he only sold one painting, he suffered from depression, became insane and finally killed himself when he was 37.

Van Gogh’s colors usually do not reflect the real-life model, instead he used colors to convey the particular impressions of the moment. His coloration often produces complementary contrasts. Van Gogh’s artistic style is considered as post-impressionism.

Paintings, music and everything great artistically employ the same principles and work very much the same ways, there are always balances, contrasts, contours, coloration and Van Gogh is known for his well-planned compositions.
