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 over 35 self-portraits,t but just one portrait photo of him. There is only one portrait photo of Vincent has survived, when he was only 19 years old. Almost everything else we know about his appearance comes from the many self-portraits he painted. The original work is in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
‘People say – and I’m quite willing to believe it – that it’s difficult to know oneself – but it’s not easy to paint oneself either.’
