Van Gogh - Self-Portrait at the Easel


Jo Bonger-Van Gogh, Theo Van Gogh's widow and Vincent's sister-in-law, was quoted saying that the above painting was "of all of his self-portraits, the one with the most likeness."

I like this one. It does have a slightly different look. Maybe a bit more detail? Interesting that this one supposedly looked most like him.
