Van Gogh exhibit

Self-Portrait in Front of the Easel (1888) * Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Vincent almost never painted himself as an artist. Most of his self portraits are painted in a more sketchy way and show only his face.
This painting shows much more details and was signed by the artist prominently, which means that he was quite pleased with it.

I feel that I am been painted by Van Gogh himself! Don’t you see? He is looking at me. Maybe I will be inside Van Gogh paintings…
