About LOQI Van Gogh Self Portrait (1887) Tote Bag
The post-impressionist artist Vincent Van Gogh painted his work Self-Portrait with Grey Felt Hat (1887, Now: Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam) represented in this LOQI Van Gogh Self Portrait tote bag while living in Paris for about two years. Scholars observed from his divisionist brushstrokes the strong influence from Pointillists such as Georges Seurat, but instead of using dots Van Gogh notoriously employed dashes. From the influence of French Impressionists artist, Van Gogh also adopted the use of strong complementary colors, such as the prevalence in use of oranges and blues. In order to suggest shadows in the rendering of the self-portrait, rather than using grey tones Van Gogh alludes to the use of colors (e.g. red dashes in the prevalent orange beard, or purple dashes in prevalent blue areas). As a result, Van Gogh’s masterful use of complementary color harmonies achieves a visual aesthetically pleasing composition where the juxtaposition of colors intensifies the others surrounding it.
