"Self-Portrait" by Vincent Van Gogh
It’s about a year later. It’s summertime in Paris and Vincent has turned his felt hat in for a straw one. The colours and mood are much brighter but his gaze is far from jovial. Vincent is giving us his serious artist look. Homework: Look at some high-resolution images of Vincent’s self-portraits focusing on the eyes only. I think you will be amazed at how much intensity Vincent can evoke with only his eyes. Question: Why do most of Vincent’s self-portraits feature him wearing a hat?
