About Van Gogh Self-Portrait Bearbrick - Medicom Toy - Set of 2 (100% and 400%)
This Van Gogh Bearbrick features one of the artist's most famous paintings: Self-Portrait.
Dubbed “Van Gogh Museum,” the figures come in sizes of 100%, 400%, 1000% and see a glossy finish over a bevy of details. Burnished blue tones complement the calm of theVan Gogh's self-portrait repeated all throughout the piece, covering every surface of the figures from the tips of their ears to the bottom of their feet. “Vincent” is scrawled diagonally on the back of the BE@RBRICKs in a typeface that loosely mimics Van Gogh’s iconic signature. Finishing off the pieces, the bottom right leg is stamped with “Van Gogh Museum,” while the left is graced with the official trademark of the artwork.
Van Gogh painted a total of twelve of the sunflower canvases, although the most commonly referred to are the seven he painted while in Arles in 1888 – 1889. The other five he had painted previously while in Paris in 1887. There are many pieces within this series of paintings (each is clearly identifiable as a Van Gogh work) in which there are only minor differences that separate them. The overall layout of the painting along with positioning of the actual sunflowers usually remains the same in the similar paintings. As Van Gogh anticipated in 1889, the Sunflowers finally became his, and served – combined with self-portraits – as his artistical arms and alter ego up to the present day.
