About the Self Portrait Painting
The artist painted his own image at regular intervals throughout his life. They are generally seen as insights into the psychological makeup of the great Dutch painter. This self portrait of Van Gogh has a swirling background that echoes the bust of the artist, but could also reflect the thinking of Vincent at the time of painting it.

Although the painting is almost monochromatic with an abundance of blues, the artist's orange and yellow beard contrasts with the blues and purples of the background and clothes worn by Vincent.
