Vincent paints himself in an impressionistic manner when he created this self portrait in late spring, early summer of 1887.  He has been in Paris for a year and is seeking color combinations that emit emotion in his eyes.  He chooses to experiment with blue-grays and brown-oranges with a mix of thick and thin brush strokes in this study created at the apartment on Rue Lepic in Montmartre.   Painting, Oil on Canvas Paris: Spring-Summer, 1887 Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Europe F: 267, JH: 1224
