Description: The Norton Simon Museum is delighted to announce an installation of Vincent van Goghs electrifying "Self-Portrait" from 1889, a highlight of the National Gallery of Arts 19th-century collection. One of 36 self-portraits by Van Gogh, and among the last he painted, the work was executed as he recovered from a severe breakdown in Saint-Rmy in the summer of 1889. Its installation at the Norton Simon Museum is the first time the painting has been on view on the West Coast, and while Southern California is home to several outstanding works by Van Gogh, none of his self-portraits are in collections here. The loan is part of a special exchange program between the Norton Simon foundations and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., that brought Vermeers "A Lady Writing" and Raphaels "Small Cowper Madonna" to the Simon in recent years.
