Whether you seek Van Gogh Portrait artwork or self-portraits, FulcrumGallery.com is the place to go to, with paintings belonging to both genres being available. What makes these images so interesting is that the painter never seems to look exactly at the viewer, but instead fixes his gaze elsewhere. Those who have the time and interest to analyze the Van Gogh Portrait paintings in great details, will have the pleasant surprise to discover that there is more than meets the eye about them.
Depending on the time when they were painted and the artist’s mood, the Van Gogh Portrait art is more or less intense. The one with the bandaged ear and the Self-portrait Without Beard are the best known, with the latter also selling for a record amount. Another thing that many Van Gogh Portrait paintings have in common is that they feature the artist with the head from the right, which makes it impossible to see the mutilated ear.
