The Italian Woman 1887 by Van Gogh

Vincent van Gogh was a Dutch painter, generally considered to be the greatest after Rembrandt van Rijn, and one of the greatest of the post-Impressionists.

While living in Paris, Van Gogh frequented the Cafe du Tambourin on the boulevard du Clichg, near his apartment, and sometimes exchanged still-life paintings for the odd meal. The proprietress of the cafe, Agostina Segatori, is thought to be the striking woman in this painting of The Italian.

'Italian Woman' was created in 1887 by Vincent van Gogh in Neo-Impressionism style. This woman model Agostina Segatori (1843-1910), was a former model with whom Van Gogh seems to have had a brief love affair a few months before this portrait was painted.

Born in 1843, Agostina Segatori posed for a Manet in 1860 and for Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot in 1873.
