Van Gogh was right-handed. We are almost certain of this, because in two self-portraits, he’s pictured with the pallet in his right hand. But because he painted himself using a mirror, you need to flip that image. Vincent is therefore actually holding the pallet with his left hand, and his brush in his right.
Will you help?
It is precisely in these uncertain times that we find comfort in Vincent’s words and artworks. With your support we can continue to share his stories.
