Details

Wile E. Van Gogh by Chuck Jones was based upon one of two self-portraits painted in January of 1889 by Vincent Van Gogh. Van Gogh, whose influences ranged from the Japanese artist Hiroshige to his contemporaries Pisarro and Seurat, had recently, in a state of madness, cut off a portion of his left ear. Both paintings from January 1889 show Van Gogh with the bandaged ear. In Wile E. Van Gogh, Jones sought to convey the passionate expressiveness and maniacal focus of his famed alter ego. Just as Van Gogh did in his paintings, Jones has applied the paint using different interpretations of Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist brushwork---separate patches of color being applied in different directions to enliven and enhance the intensity of the subject. (Chuck Jones has also re-interpreted Van Gogh'™s other self-portrait of January 1889 in his limited edition lithograph Vincent Van Coyote released in 1989.)
