Art #12: Self-Portrait (Vincent van Gogh)

Posted by Posted by ARJAY On 10:29 AM

Vincent van Gogh is probably the best Dutch painter, after Rembrandt. He used bold colors and focused on peasants and rural scenes. His fascination for the poor made them subjects of his earlier works. His style of painting was influenced by his contemporaries. He experimented with pointillism, a stilt in which many primary colored dots are painted closely together to form the illusion of rich color when seen from a distance. He is a brilliant artist and great in expressing his personal art skill.
