Van Gogh in Paris

This is the finest Self-portrait by Vincent van Gogh I've seen, created during December 1886-January 1887. It's on loan from the Collection Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, The Hague, for Van Gogh in Paris, a new exhibition at the Eykyn Maclean private gallery in London (CLICK). Van Gogh spent two years in Paris, mixing with the likes of Monet, Pissarro, Toulouse-Lautrec and Gauguin. Their radical ideas helped him to develop his own unique style. The exhibition includes paintings by his fellow artists he would have viewed, as well as his own paintings drawn from private collections and rarely seen. You need to reserve tickets to see the show, but they are free. Visit the website for details.
