Vincent Van Gogh is more than an icon of art history, he is a romantic myth. Undiscovered in his lifetime and plagued with mental illness, the specificities of his personality and practice have been subsumed beneath tragedy.

In Auguste Blackman’s portrait of the artist, Van Gogh’s charisma and vulnerability beams forth, his red hair filling the frame. Across his lifetime, Van Gogh painted thirty-seven self-portraits, less because of vanity and more from necessity, having been unable to afford models. In these works, a study of the self emerges, both fraught and compelling.

At once about the status of the artist as well as Van Gogh himself, ‘Vincent Van Gogh’ is an arresting post-impressionist work. It will enliven collections of Auguste Blackman, portraits and contemporary painting.
