Vincent van GOGH , 1853 - 1890

Medium: Oil on canvas
Dimensions: 40.3 x 30.5 cm
Acquisition credit: Accepted under the Cultural Gifts Scheme by HM Government and allocated to The National Gallery, 2013

In 1883 Van Gogh settled in Nuenen, a village in North Brabant in the Netherlands, where his father was a minister. There he observed the lives of peasants as he established himself as a painter of working people. This is one of over 40 heads he painted that winter.

Dark, coarse and unidealised, the study was executed before the artist received any form of artistic training.
