Vincent moved to Paris in 1886, after hearing from his brother Theo about the new, colourful style of French painting. Wasting no time, he tried it out in several self-portraits. He did this mostly to avoid having to pay for a model. Using rhythmic brushstrokes in striking colours, he portrayed himself here as a fashionably dressed Parisian. Produced on a stretched canvas expertly crafted in-house in the UK with the latest technology and skilled craftsmen. This specialised process creates a unique and high quality picture that captures all the colour, craquelure, texture and character of an original painting.
