"We painters work better in the country," Van Gogh wrote to his sister Wil in January of 1890, shortly after he painted this view of the Alpilles mountain range outside Saint-Rémy. "Everything there speaks more clearly, everything holds firm, everything explains itself."

Self-Portrait with Grey Felt Hat Van Gogh painted this self-portrait in the winter of 1887–88, when he had been in Paris for almost two years. It is clear from the work that he had studied the technique of the Pointillists and applied it in his own, original way. He placed the short stripes of paint in different directions. Where they follow the outline of his head, they form a kind of halo.
The painting is also one of Van Gogh’s boldest colour experiments in Paris. He placed complementary colours alongside one another using long brushstrokes: blue and orange in the background, and red and green in the beard and eyes. The colours intensify one another. The red pigment has faded, so the purple strokes are now blue, which means the contrast with the yellow is less powerful.

Vincent van Gogh greatly admired the French artist Jean-François Millet. Just like Millet, he wanted to paint peasant life. Although Vincent finally found his own direction, Millet remained an enormous source of inspiration throughout his life. Curious how Vincent was inspired by Millet?
