Print of Vincent van Gogh's Self-Portrait, 1887.
The original oil painting, a highlight for many visitors to the Detroit Institute of Arts, is the first Van Gogh painting to enter a U.S. museum collection.
"For want of a better model," Van Gogh chose to paint his own portrait on many occasions. While in Paris between 1886 and 1888, Van Gogh lightened his palette under the influence of the brilliant colors of the impressionists, but he soon reserved the use of such light colors to express particular moods. Van Gogh's stay in Paris was a relatively happy one, and in this painting, created during the summer of 1887, he portrays himself with an almost light-hearted appearance.
Printed with archival-quality pigment inks on high-resolution, large-format twelve-color printers, the substrate is an acid-free and lignin-free 230gsm coated fine art paper. The bright white base color and smooth matte finish allows for the highest quality reproduction possible.
The image size is 9.75 x 7.5 inches on an 11 x 14 white ground, allowing it to fit into a standard 11 x 14 inch frame.
