Self-portrait van Gogh

Van Gogh decided to move to Paris in 1886, after hearing from his brother Theo about the new, colourful French style of painting. He immediately starting experimenting with this new style in several self-portraits. He did mostly self-portraits to save costs by avoiding to pay models. In the winter of 1887-1888 he painted this self-portrait. Using striking colours and rhythmic brushes he painted himself as a fashionably dressed Parisian.
