Chris Chapman’s Artists Series, Vincent van Earoff, a humorous and clever original painting taking inspiration from one of Vincent Van Gogh’s most iconic paintings ‘Van Gogh’s Chair’: This painting of a simple chair set on a bare floor of terracotta tiles is was painted in late 1888, soon after fellow artist Paul Gauguin had joined Van Gogh in Arles in the south of France. The picture was a pair to another painting, Gauguin’s Chair. They were to be hung together, with one chair turned to the right, the other to the left. Both chairs function as surrogate portraits, representing the personalities and distinct artistic outlooks of the two artists. Van Gogh’s chair is simple and functional, displaying the every day items of his pipe and tobacco.
Framed in a contemporary distressed frame with a double white slip. Please note this is a slightly different shaped moulding to previous originals. The original moulding has been discontinued. It is very similar to the original one used but if you have any questions or wish to see the profiles side by side do get in touch.
