The dozens of self-portraits by Vincent van Gogh were an important part of his oeuvre as a painter. Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) created many self-portraits during his lifetime. Most probably, Van Gogh’s self portraits are depicting the face as it appeared in the mirror he used to reproduce his face, i.
e. his right side in the image is in reality the left side of his face. Contents [hide] 1 Periods 1. 1 pans 1886 1. 2 pans 1887 1. 3 Arles 1.

Scandals During the Third Reich regime in Germany, Vincent van Gogh paintings were stolen and/or destroyed by German authorities including the self-portrait [Self-portrait dedicated to Paul Gauguin, September 1888], depicted in the black and white picture. Fakes Self-portrait, ?¤ l’oreille mutil?©, 1889? (F 528) National Gallery, Oslo Almost at the same time as when his Catalogue raisonn?© was published, Jacob Baart de la Faille had to admit that he had included paintings emerging from dubious sources, and of dubious quality.
Little later, in 1930, De la Faille rejected some thirty odd paintings, which he had originally included in his Catalogue raisonn?© – together with a hundred of others he had already excluded: Self-portraits – and Sunflowers – Faille’s posthumous manuscript brand marked most of these dubious Self-portraits s forgeries, but could not settle all disputes, at least on one: The Selfportrait ‘a l’?©stampe Japonais’, then in the collection of William Goetz, Los Angeles, was included, though all editors refused its authenticity.  Meanwhile, the authenticity of a second “self-portrait” has been challenged: The Selfportrait, ‘?¤ l’oreille mutil?©’, acquired in 1910 for the Nas]onalgalleriet, Oslo, has been unanimously rejected by recent scholars and technical researchers for decades, until provenance research by staff members now reported pro domo the contrary.  The debate is on-going. Portraits f Vincent van Gogh by other artists John Peter Russell, 1886, Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam Photo by Victor Morin, c. 1886, Brussels.
