Download Hundreds of Van Gogh Paintings, Sketches & Letters in High Resolution

VG-Self-Portrait-1887

 “Van Gogh’s fame has had the unfortunate side effect of crowding out many students of his art from gallery exhibitions. Yet this difficulty need not now prevent them from surveying and seeing up close his huge body of work in digital archives like that of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the largest Van Gogh collection in the world.”

By entering the collection, you can see, for example, Self Portrait with Straw Hat, at the top, from 1887, or the strikingly similar portrait of his brother and staunch supporter Theo from the same year, below. “

“You can also see an 1882 letter to Theo, with a beautiful sketch of a Pollard Willow, an image he committed to canvas that year. “
