Head of a woman

Vincent van Gogh, Head of a woman, 1885

This is one of the few examples of a colour study from the series of Nuenen heads. Van Gogh has applied the principle of complementary colour contrasts as he knew it from Blanc: the red of the cap contrasts with the green of the dress, while the yellow and orange in the hair are accentuated by the different hues of blue-black in the background.
