  • Painting Description

    "Self-Portrait with a Straw Hat (verso: The Potato Peeler)" is a notable artwork by the Dutch post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh, believed to have been created in 1887 during his time in Paris. This double-sided painting is a testament to Van Gogh's evolving artistic style and his exploration of color and technique influenced by the Impressionists and Neo-Impressionists he encountered in the city.

    The obverse of the canvas features one of Van Gogh's many self-portraits, where he presents himself in a straw hat, a common motif in his work that symbolizes the rural and peasant life that he admired and sought to represent in his art. The self-portrait is characterized by bold, directional brushstrokes and a vivid palette, which marked a departure from the darker tones of his earlier Dutch period. Van Gogh's use of light and shadow, as well as his intense gaze, captures the artist's psychological state and his relentless quest for personal and artistic identity.

    On the reverse side, "The Potato Peeler" offers a stark contrast with its depiction of a peasant woman engaged in the mundane task of peeling potatoes. This work reflects Van Gogh's enduring interest in the lives of the working class and his desire to convey the dignity of their labor. The earthy tones and the empathetic portrayal of the subject are indicative of Van Gogh's social concerns and his connection to the Realist tradition.

    The dual nature of this canvas, with its contrasting themes and styles, provides a unique insight into Van Gogh's artistic journey and his experimentation with new techniques during a pivotal period in his career. The painting is also a valuable piece of evidence of Van Gogh's practice of reusing canvases, a common practice among artists of the time for economic reasons.

    "Self-Portrait with a Straw Hat (verso: The Potato Peeler)" is held in the collection of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, which houses the largest collection of Van Gogh's works in the world. The painting is frequently studied for its contribution to the understanding of Van Gogh's development as an artist and is considered an important work within the broader context of 19th-century European art.
