Portrait of Père Tanguy - Vincent Van Gogh

When Vincent Van Gogh arrived in Paris for the first time, he met one of the most delightful characters of the Parisian artistic milieu of the 1880s and 1890s, the man his painter friends affectionately called "Father Tanguy". Nicknamed the "color crusher", he ran a small color store on rue Clauzel and often accepted paintings in exchange for his wares. In this work, the artist represents his subject in the style of the old Japanese sages on a background saturated with brightly colored Japanese prints.

The artwork in a nutshell

When Vincent Van Gogh arrived in Paris for the first time, he met one of the most delightful characters of the Parisian artistic milieu of the 1880s and 1890s, the man his painter friends affectionately called "Father Tanguy".

The artist

Né le 30 Mars 1853, à Groot-Zundert en Hollande, Vincent Van Gogh se destine d'abord à une vie religieuse. A 27 ans, après une intense phase de dépression, il décide de se consacrer uniquement à la peinture. Ses fréquentations et lieux de vie l'influenceront dans ses mouvances artistiques : post-impressionnisme, expressionnisme et fauvisme. Il part pour Paris rejoindre son frère, où il rencontrera Toulouse-Lautrec, Pissarro et Gauguin. En 1886, il déménage pour Arles et s'installe dans un atelier avec son ami Gauguin. Une violente dispute avec ce dernier le conduit à se trancher l'oreille. Conscient de ses crises de folie, il consent à l'internement en 1889 dans un asile religieux à Saint-Rémi de Provence. Deux mois après sa sortie, il se suicide d'une balle de revolver en 1890 à Auvers-Sur-Oise.
