Notes

Summary:
One is struck by the profusion of red and blue dots swarming over the dark green background and by the manner in which the reddish brown of the jacket is rendered in a kind of mosaic of dark blue-green, orange-red, and yellow dots. The bright red beard and yellow-brown hair have been built up from separate brushstrokes in forceful colors, and Vincent has left touches of unmixed complementary green in the eyebrows, hair and beard. Van Gogh painted 24 self-portraits during a two-year stay in Paris (1886-88). In this Self-Portrait,the Dutch artist employed Seurat's dot technique. But what for Seurat was a method based on science became in van Gogh's hands an intense emotional language.
