From Hellen van Berkel: "Self-portrait", Vincent van Gogh. 100% handmade with bead and needle embroidery.
Vincent moved to Paris in 1886, after hearing from his brother Theo about the new, colourful style of French painting. Wasting no time, he tried it out in several self-portraits. He did this mostly to avoid having to pay for a model. Using rhythmic brushstrokes in striking colours, he portrayed himself here as a fashionably dressed Parisian.
Dimensions: 7 cm H
