Van gogh created more than 43 self-portraits between 1885 and 1889. They were usually completed in series, such as those painted in paris in mid-1887, and continued until the last weeks of his life in auvers-sur-oise during when he produced no self-portraits. Generally the portraits were studies, created during introspective periods when he was reluctant to mix with others, or when he lacked models, and so painted himself.The self-portraits reflect a degree of self-scrutiny that, according to hughes, is "seldom if ever" apparent in an artist. Often they mark important periods in his development, for example in the mid-1887 paris series, where he became influenced by claude monet, paul cezanne and signac. In self-portrait with grey felt hat, heavy strains of paint spread outwards across the canvas. It is one of his better self-portraits of that period, "with its highly organized rhythmic brushstrokes, and the novel halo derived from the neo-impressionist repertoire was what van gogh himself called a 'purposeful' canvas".….The above description is of the original painting (original painting is not the part of this product, it is only for your reference).
