Ser Jacopo Picta van Gogh Smooth Cutty (02)

Product Number: 004-006-9461

This particular variation of the Picta '2' was taken, almost directly, from Vincent van Gogh's Head of a Young Peasant with Pipe. The painting was created in December 1884, when the artist set himself the task of painting and drawing a large series of portraits of the peasants in Brabant. Rather than seeking beauty, van Gogh was looking for models of commonality, to be depicted in traditional dress. For the portrait he chose a young man, dressed in a blue jacket with his white shirt showing at the throat, contrasted with the flesh colors of the face brightened by touches of red on cheek and lips. Ser Jacopo found inspiration in the pipe, which, because of the faint glowing embers in the chamber, adds a little warmth and liveliness to an otherwise dark painting. Likewise, the quirky, old Cutty pipe design (originally made of clay) of the Picta '2' echos the somber austerity of the picture through its dark stain, which subdues the flame grain, while also lightened up by Ser Jacopo's own accent of gleaming silver haloing the shank.
