Hello Beautiful Souls! After the Van Gogh immersive experience, I was delighted that this exhibition was coming up at the Courtauld Gallery. Seeing these self-portraits together is one of a kind event that I didn’t want to miss.
The Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear is an iconic item already in the Courtauld collection. Seeing all these sixteen portraits together has never been done before after each canvas left the Van Gogh studio. Van Gogh made thirty-five portraits in total.
These portraits are stunning. It is such an honour to see them up close and personal. You can see the techniques he learned over the years in Paris and the South of France. The contrast of the colours [blues and greens] he used next to his painting techniques, from pointillism to [Impasto] brush strokes, is just perfection.
Unfortunately, this exhibition has passed, but you can still admire the self-portrait with the Bandaged Ear at the Courtauld Gallery.
