1887 Towards the end of his life, van Gogh was committed to an asylum. His self portraits from this time reflect his mental instability. Vincent van Gogh painted self portraits using them to experiment with new ideas. Van Gogh had a hard life and this was portrayed in his ever changing self portraits. Rembrandt Dutchman Van Gogh eventually left Paris and headed for the south of France, where he quickly became even more fascinated with color.

Van Gogh had done self-portraits since his 1886 dark felt-hatted painting, but his summer of 1887 self-portrait is full of the beautiful blue and gold of Van Gogh’s trademark sunflowers and heady skies.
