Contemporary art historians from a variety of different angles , different areas of the art multi-level multi-dimensional study , in which the more famous art history analysis methods: analysis of formalist aesthetics , iconography method , structuralism and deconstruction ( after structuralist ) analysis, neo-Marxist analysis and psychoanalysis methods and so on. These new methods after another, with each passing day , it seems " squandering charming eyes " of the situation . However, the methodology itself does not have a body sense , it is to arrive obscured by new methods of art itself , revealing the deep meaning of art itself , thus demonstrating authentic human existence and significance of the situation .


Indeed , to discern art itself a work of art , but also the creator and the viewer needs to have some understanding of originality , depending on their knowledge and aesthetic accomplishment, it can reflect a person's social, political , economic and even sexual concepts. In addition, viewers watching a fine art of time and space , but also an important reference to the interpretation of a work of art . This paper attempts to aid some of the history of art analytical methods to study the Dutch painter Van Gogh (1853-1890) unlimited potential significance and interpretation of self- portraits of art itself .


Van Gogh, 19 representative of the late impressionist painter, from his 1886-1890 self-portrait works of art maturity up to four dozen pieces , which in the self-portrait is undoubtedly prominent art history , but also because of Van Gogh on Modern Art and significant impact of general concern in modern society. Therefore, the subject is selected as a certain reference value.


Formalist analysis


They formalism analysts believe that the line image from the observed shape and color of the point , further speaking, the aesthetic effect by the lines, the shape and arrangement of colors .

As shown , who is a high 1887 • " Self- portrait wearing a straw hat ", with this concept to analyze Van Gogh 's painting portraits from the time we can noticed : the whole picture is bright yellow , solid color area over the large , both the characters and background , yellow is the basic color, the painter with a clear red lines outline the contours of portraits , portraits next to the blue with a rough and irregular short lines to explain the background. That has a certain visual realism , but also a very strong effect of the plane . Van Gogh said: "I always fixed in one location to paint, draw attention to grasp the most essential thing , and then contour the space defined by the fill color of each block whether it expresses what , because it is able to feel the color. , also simplifies color . " 1 this passage reflects the lines and colors of Van Gogh personalized understanding , but also to convey the unique features of the visual language of his creation. Canvas vivid depiction of the Van Gogh totally dependent personality , enthusiasm and a strong color and firm lines, the artist expressed his strong eyes strong confidence in the creative process . In addition, he is keen on the performance of natural light , is indicative of that era painters authenticity of the performance of outdoor sunlight quest .


Indeed , Van Gogh self- portrait of the aesthetic effect of color and line itself is enough to have constituted a meaningful appeal. But a successful work of art should be impressed in both form and meaning to humans. Therefore, the image analysis method highlights important.


Image analysis method


The method involves the meaning of the iconography content and themes . Representatives of research methods Panofsky iconography think the content of decisive significance for the meaning of art. A work of art has been able to impress people - like Van Gogh 's self-portraits , like , depending on the form and content of the work gives both impressive . In comparison, the interpretation of figurative works that people typically use this method. For example , the idea of ​​the creation phase portraits , the artist is often the first to accept a given piece or looking for a model, and then design composition and color , and in the combined model on the basis of their own personality to create artistic images . Such creative work completed must reflect the artist's personal artistic language model unique identity and personality or both. Later, appreciation and art historians interpreted accordingly wrote a paragraph of text and narrative about the creation of this piece . Needless to say , when the work will have a broader implication , people can put it in the whole discussion of cultural history , that at this time "Van Gogh self-portrait ," there will be a dual aesthetic and cultural history of mean . We can look for information about the " self-portrait " in art history and for the study. Of course, this is a complex task that can not be resolved short of space , the need for further specialized research . Here only Van Gogh self-portrait in the form of theme theme for the focus to talk about the meaning behind the content .


Late 19th century , active in Paris innovative artists , their social reality is contradictory, loners spiritually. In impressionism get rid of dependence on literature, history , themes and techniques , too, abandoned the traditional painting ideas, explore painting itself independent value . " Painting is a painting, not history , literature, or something else ." Subjective thinking illuminate these innovators , modernist painting has become a spiritual origins . At this time, the social transformation of the oscillation , the impact of foreign art ( here mainly refers to Japanese ukiyo-e prints ) , especially in the light of scientific technological progress, social value conflicts have become increasingly apparent . This series of problems caused by the artists' attention and thinking.


Themes and the creative process of art needs to find a way to solve their own problems . Thus, the portrait of this ancient theme in the post-Impressionist painter in the hands of the decline , and again in the eyes of innovators opened a new meaning, these artists have contributed to the formation of personality . Delacroix's memory and to the worship of the great Rembrandt self- portrait in a Van Gogh portrait topic to be awakened . He knew it was a return , because at that time the art of deviation from the study of human face .
