Vincent van Gogh drawings - part 5

Self-Portrait 1889 
oil on canvas 65 x 54 cm

This is part 5 of a 5-part post on the drawings of Vincent van Gogh (1853 - 1890). Vincent van Gogh's more than 1,100 drawings remain comparatively unknown, although they are among his most ingenious and striking creations. He engaged drawing and painting in a rich dialogue, which enabled him to fully realise the creative potential of both means of expression. For more notes on van Gogh's drawings see part 1. For earlier works see parts 1 - 4 also. 

Note: Where a drawing relates to a finished oil painting I have also shown the painting:
