Re: Fireflies used as a hairpin
"You wish to succeed and shine, but do you know what your really want?"
Van Gogh 1881-12, Etten - Scheveningen Woman Sewing F 869 JH 83
"Van Gogh painted this self-portrait in the winter of 1887–1888, when he had been living in Paris for nearly two years. Since his arrival in the city he had devoted much study to the dotted Pointillist technique, thereby learning how he might apply it in his own fashion. His use of brushstrokes running in a variety of directions created a self-portrait with a halo-like circle round his head. This variation and the dynamics it created were Van Gogh’s own contribution to the new style of painting." (Van Gogh Museum notice)
