In this video from the Children’s Video Tour, kids can learn about Vincent van Gogh’s 1889 “Self-Portrait.” Van Gogh’s career as an artist lasted only ten years, and he died not long after he made this painting. But, just as he appears in this self-portrait, Van Gogh was a sensitive and thoughtful painter who was passionate about art. He once said “Portraits …excite me to the depth of my soul. They make me feel the infinite more than anything else.” On view in the West Building, Main Floor, Gallery 83. http://www.nga.gov/fcgi-bin/tinfo_f?object=106382 ----- Find the Children's Video Tour at http://www.nga.gov/education/timetravel/index.shtm
