This portrait monday has been brought to you by Winsor Gallery's Art Advisor, Brenda Bradshaw. 

Why Brenda selected this portrait:

"I think the self-portrait of VanGogh with the missing ear is interesting because he is the embodiment of the tortured artist. Not afraid to push boundaries in his day, VanGogh never sold a painting in his lifetime. Today his paintings garner some of the highest prices seen at global art auctions."
