About Vincent van Gogh and his famous Self Portrait painting.. A few months before Van Gogh's death, he painted one of his greatest self-portraits.
Some physicians believe the compulsive, restless ornament of the background, reminiscent of the work of mental patients, indicates that the painting was created during a psychotic episode. However, the self-image of the painter shows a masterly control and power of observation, a mind perfectly capable of integrating its elements. With the dominant bluish tone of the portrait, the background resembles the rhythms of The Starry Night.
