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.’

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.
