Vincent van Gogh At The Met

"I deliberately bought a good mirror so if I lacked a model, I could work from my own likeness." - Vincent van Gogh
Neo-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh's paintings are on display at the second floor of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The collection includes his "Self Portrait with a Straw Hat, 1887). Vincent van Gogh is a Ductch painter (1853-1890). He was a largely self-taught artist, zealously copying prints and studying 19th century drawing manuals and lesson books.
