An intimate collection of Vincent van Gogh’s portraits and self- portraits - perhaps the work for which he is best known.
Despite his posthumous fame as a painter of flowers, still lifes, gardens, landscapes, and city scenes, Vincent van Gogh himself believed that his portraits constituted his most important works. Like other post-Impressionists, Van Gogh sought to capture the essential character of his models by means of expressive colour and brushwork.
Vincent’s Portraits reflects the strong visual impact with which the artist captured the energy of contemporary life.
