Portrait of Vincent van Gogh

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec completed this Portrait of Vincent van Gogh in 1887. It was done with pastels on cardboard and is currently in the Van Gogh museum. I chose this post-impressionist work because I find it a neat look into history that one legendary artist would be doing a portrait of an even more legendary artist. Also the style is cool, because at first glance it looks really simple like it was done in by a kid in colored pencil.
