London Dada Work No. 857: Van Gogh as He Was ( triptych )

First in a new “artists as they were” London Dada concept series depicting iconic artists of the previous centuries as close as is possible to how they appeared to others at the time, through creating mirror images of their self-portraits that were themselves all made using mirrors thus reversing back to close to how they appeared at the time of making the portrait.

Mirror images of three of Vincent Van Gogh’s famous self-portraits, reversing the original mirror images that the artist used to create the Works; the subtle difference thereby gained giving a fascinating new view of the artist that is as close as possible without the benefit of a photograph at time of sitting to his actual appearance and how others saw him at that time.
* Notes. Van Gogh severed his left ear; in the third of the triptych the bandaged ear is now on the correct side.
