About Musart Exclusive Sweatshirt - Kiss My Art - Van Gogh (M)

Musart Boutique is proud to present our exclusive original collection Kiss My Art featuring a limited edition of sweatshirts displaying art timeless masterpieces which bridge the traditional history of art and contemporary apparel at an accessible prices. Part of Musart Boutique’s original collection Kiss My Art comes this Van Gogh inspired hoodie representing one of the artist's auto-portraits.

Van Gogh like many artists in the history of art used himself as a model producing over 43 self-portraits during his lifetime. Like the old masters, van Gogh managed to paint himself critically, often revealing important psychological moments throughout the artist’s life. Such is the case of van Gogh’s Self-Portrait made in 1889 while interned at an Asylum in Saint-Remy. The arabesque figures in the background along with the bright aquamarine color are arguably indicative of the van Gogh’s mental state while interned at the psychiatric facility. Van Gogh’s static posture immediately contrasts with the dynamic absinthe-like color of the arabesque background. In this head-and-shoulders view, the artist is wearing a suit and not the pea jacket he usually worked in. Attention is focused on the face. His features are hard and emaciated, his green-rimmed eyes seem intransigent and anxious. More details on Musart Exclusive Sweatshirt - Kiss My Art - Van Gogh (M):

    Van Gogh

    Van Gogh was a master painter who strongly influenced the abstract and Neo-expressionist who came after him. Originating from the Netherlands, he discovered Impressionist art while living in Paris and started to use the color and light. His work is well known for its beauty, emotion, and color, as well as its interesting viewpoints of mundane objects. Despite being extremely poor and generally unknown throughout his lifetime, Van Gogh is now one of the greatest Dutch painters.  He lived a life with emotional tension and madness, and he created his finest piece, Starry Night, inside an institution. Although the specter of mental illness haunted him throughout his adult life and created a habit of inflicting self-harm (such as the infamous severed ear), his work remained a testament to his genius. Van Gogh died at the age of only 37, due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His brother Theo would go on to distribute his work and cultivate his popularity.
