Spiral Notebook developed from Vincent van Gogh’s, Self-Portrait, 1887, from The Art Institute of Chicago’s collection. 

Van Gogh created at least twenty-four self-portraits during his two-year stay in the energetic French capital. This early example is modest in size and was painted on prepared artist’s board rather than canvas. Its densely dabbed brushwork, which became a hallmark of Van Gogh’s style, re?ects the artist’s response to Georges Seurat’s revolutionary pointillist technique in A Sunday on La Grande Jatte—1884.
