Sunflowers (also known as Tournesols in French), is the name of two series of still life paintings by the Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh. The first series, executed in Paris in 1887, portrays the flowers lying on the ground, while the second set, executed a year later in Arles, and demonstrates a bundle of sunflowers in a vase. In the artist’s mind, the two series were connected by the name of his companion Paul Gauguin, who obtained two of the Paris forms.

Five Most Famous and Iconic Paintings by Vincent van Gogh/Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear

Artist:           Vincent van Gogh
Year:             1889
Medium:       Oil on Canvas
Dimensions:  60cmx49cm (24inx19in)
Locations:      Courtauld Gallery

Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear is an 1889 self-portrait by Dutch, Post-Impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh. In the portrait, Van Gogh can be seen wearing a blue cap with dark fur and a green jacket, with a bandage covering his ear and stretching out under his chin. He is in a customary three-quarter view, and his forward look falls somewhat to one side, out of the frame. Behind him is an open window, assumedly letting in a winter breeze, and a canvas on an easel. Van Gogh utilized a mirror for his self-representation which is the reason some mistakenly feel that he lost a part of his right ear rather than his left. The bandage covering Van Gogh’s ear in this work of art insinuates his most well-known conflict. Paul Gauguin joined Van Gogh in Arles in November 1888, with the end goal to paint together in what Van Gogh called the ‘studio of the south’, yet they immediately began to have arguments. After a disagreement on 23 December, Van Gogh damaged his right ear. He was admitted to the hospital, and Gauguin came back to Paris.

This self-portrait was one of the first works Van Gogh painted after this occurrence. He appears to have felt that painting would enable him to recoup his psychological equilibrium.
