Self-Portrait, Van Gogh Boxed Candle

Add to Cart








This lovely boxed soy candle was inspired by Van Gogh's Self-Portrait, a favorite in the collection of the Detroit Institute of Arts. 

"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 color 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.

This hand poured soy candle, with scent notes of Black Currant, Saffron, Sweet Anise, and Green Floral, has the DIA logo on the glass container and comes in a presentation box with an image of Van Gogh's Self-Portrait.

A wonderful gift, this candle is equally comfortable in contemporary as well as in more classical interiors.
